Special Issue on Satellite Soil Moisture - part 1 published
EOWAVE member Wouter Dorigo is guest editor of a special issue on “The advances in the validation and application of remotely sensed soil moisture” in the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation. The aim of this special issue is to give a comprehensive state-of-the-art on the potential and limitations of various new satellite products, in particular with respect to the various application fields. The Special Issue consists of two parts:
- Part 1 primarily focuses on single sensor soil moisture retrievals and product validation and is now available online at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/03032434/45/part/PB
- Part 2 (expected by mid 2016) will mainly focus on long-term soil moisture records from multi-sensor observations (e.g. soil moisture records from the ESA Soil Moisture Climate Change Initiative (CCI)) and satellite soil moisture applications.
Part 1 features the following contributions with EOWAVE member participation:
