Publication: High Resolution Land Surface Geophysical Parameters Estimation from ALOS PALSAR data

Posted on Posted in Algorithm Development, Geospatial Modelling, GIS solutions, News, Satellite Remote Sensing, Validation of satellite retrieved variables

A satellite-only algorithm (which does not need ancillary data on soil surface roughness and vegetation) to retrieve soil moisture is tested over ambhas site ( in India. The satellite data used is L-band ALOS PALSAR which has all weather capability. The estimated soil moisture had a spatial resolution of 25 m capable of estimating crop water stress in small farms also. The estimated soil moisture can be used to address hydrological and agricultural applications that demand higher resolution information.
