Satellite remote sensing observations have the potential for efficient and reliable mapping of spatial soil moisture distributions. However, soil moisture retrievals from microwave remote sensing techniques are typically complex due to inherent difficulty in characterizing the interactions among land surface parameters that contribute to the retrieval(More)
— The potential of a rating curve model for flood monitoring is examined using SSM/I passive microwave images and flow discharge data. Flooded areas are estimated by a linear combination of brightness temperatures measured by the SSM/I sensor in the 19, 37 and 85 GHz channels on each pixel at the reception of each new image. NOAA-AVHRR images are used to(More)
Using microwave brightness temperature diurnal cycle to improve emissivity retrievals over land" (2012). a b s t r a c t a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Emissivity Brightness temperature Diurnal cycle Land Passive microwave Effective temperature Vegetation Soil moisture To retrieve microwave land emissivity, infrared surface skin temperatures have been used(More)
This study addresses the issue of the variability and heterogeneity problems that are expected from a sensor with a larger footprint having homogenous and heterogeneous sub-pixels. Improved understanding of spatial variability of soil surface characteristics such as land cover and vegetation in larger footprint are critical in remote sensing based soil(More)
The proposed approach aims to estimate the flood extent and soil wetness using AMSR-E passive microwave data. The approach is applied over the Peace Athabasca Delta at the Mackenzie River Basin, which is situated in northwestern Canada. The methodology is based on the Polarization Ratio index (PR), which is computed using AMSR-E 37 GHz, vertically and(More)

The objective of this study was to use satellite imagery to monitor the water budget of Al Ain region in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Inflows and outflows were estimated and the trend of water storage variation in the study area was examined from 2005 to 2014. Evapotranspiration was estimated using the simplified Penman-Monteith equation. Landsat images(More)
