An empirical algorithm for the retrieval of soil moisture content and surface Root Mean Square (RMS) height from remote.ly sensed radar data was developed using scatterorneter data. The algorithm is optimized for bare surfaces and requires two co-polarized channels at a frequency between 1.5 G1lz and 11 GHz. It gives best results for kh <2.5, p, < 35% and(More)
