This study examines the potential of the soil moisture estimates generated by satellite based microwave sensors. Two case studies pertaining to the Nebraska and California states of the United States are presented. In Nebraska, using the 1995-2010 data, the soil moisture estimates were found to be significantly correlated (Coeff. of correlation = 0.56) with… CONTINUE READING
