The purpose of this study is to evaluate the capability of surface radar backscatter models to estimate soil moisture over agricultural fields from fully polarimetric RADARSAT-2 C-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) responses. For validation purposes, ground measurements over 44 sampling sites in eastern Ontario, Canada were carried out in the spring of 2008 simultaneously with satellite data acquisitions. Soil moisture retrieval was accomplished using two semi-empirical scattering models… CONTINUE READING
