Abstract

Soil moisture plays a key role in the hydrological cycle. Because of its heterogeneous distribution satellite measurements can be favourable for arriving at mean areal values. For bare soil such values of soil moisture can be derived from active microwave measurements. However a commonly recognised method for estimating soil moisture under vegetation using remote sensing data does not exist at present. Carlson proposed a method to estimate soil moisture of the upper layer under the vegetation. This method involves using VIS-, NIR-, and TIR data and simulations of a Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere-Transfer (SVAT)-model. The original method is enhanced and tested in theory and practical application. Comparison of derived soil moisture with field measurements shows good agreement. It is shown that microwave measurements can be included in the analysis in a meaningful way.
