Currently the soil moisture is available either at coarse spatial scale from passive microwave remote sensing or at infrequent repeat time from active microwave remote sensing. A novel MAPSM algorithm is developed which merges Active and Passive microwave Soil Moisture to obtain a higher spatio-temporal soil moisture which is a prerequisite for various hydrological, agricultural and […]

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 […]
