Relationship between Soil Moisture Content and Soil Surface Reflectance

  title={Relationship between Soil Moisture Content and Soil Surface Reflectance},
  author={Amy L Kaleita and Lian Fang Tian and Martin Hirschi},
Depending on the topography and soil characteristics of an area, soil moisture, an important factor in crop productivity, can be quite variable over the land surface. Thus, a method for determination of soil moisture without the necessity for exhaustive manual measurements would be beneficial for characterizing soil moisture within a given region or field. In this study, soil surface reflectance data in the visible and near−infrared regions were analyzed in conjunction with surface moisture… CONTINUE READING
