The increasing interest of the scientific community in soil moisture mapping at global scale, with which climate and hydrologic models could be improved, has lead to the proposal of ESA’s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) [1], and NASA’s Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) [2]. After launch, both missions will need an intensive Cal/Val of soil(More)
UAV (unmanned Aerial Vehicle) platforms represent a challenging opportunity for the deployment of a number of remote sensors. These vehicles are a cost-effective option in front of manned aerial vehicles (planes and helicopters), are easy to deploy due to the short runways needed, and they allow users to meet the critical requirements of the spatial and(More)
