Project description

Remotely sensed soil moisture values will be calculated using multitemporal (weekly) and multifrequency (L, C and X bands) radardata, through which information about the soil moisture profile is available. This information will be used in a hydrologica model in order to invert the soil physical properties which lead to this profile. This will be performed using a Kalman filter.
