From Point to Pixel Scale: An Upscaling Approach for In Situ Soil Moisture Measurements
Given the high spatial variability of soil moisture content (SMC), direct comparison and integration of observations from different sources and measurement scales is becoming a major challenge. We have developed a spatial ...
Estimation of soil moisture in mountain areas using SVR technique applied to multiscale active radar images at C band
This paper presents an approach for retrieval of soil moisture content (SMC) from different satellite sensors with a focus on mountain areas. The novelties of the paper are: the extension of an already developed method to ...
Estimation of Soil Moisture in Vegetation-Covered Floodplains with Sentinel-1 SAR Data Using Support Vector Regression
Soil moisture (SM) is a significant parameter influencing various environmental processes in hydrology, ecology, and climatology. SAR-derived remote sensing products can be valuable input features for estimating SM. In the ...
The Added Value of the VH/VV Polarization-Ratio for Global Soil Moisture Estimations From Scatterometer Data
The successor to the current series of Metop advanced scatterometers (ASCATs), the Metop-SG SCA, will be able to record data in dual-polarization, at C-band. The aim of this study is to investigate if the information ...
Synergetic use of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data for soil moisture mapping at plot scale
This paper presents an approach for retrieval of soil moisture content (SMC) by coupling single polarization C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and optical data at the plot scale in vegetated areas. The study was carried ...
Soil moisture estimation by SAR in Alpine fields using Gaussian Process Regressor trained by model simulations
In this paper, we address the problem of retrieving soil moisture over a grassland alpine area from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data using a statistical algorithm trained by simulations of a physical model. A time series ...
