The flood depends upon the intensity of rainfall and the infiltration (absorption) capacity of soil which is related to soil moisture. The satellite soil moisture provides information on the soil infiltration capacity.
A combination of real-time precipitation availability and satellite soil moisture can predict the floods. Based on precipitation forecast and soil moisture data, the flash flood advisory can be issued every 24 hours to reduce the losses due to floods.
