Application of microwave remotely sensed surface soil moisture for estimation of sub-surface soil hydraulic properties

IGARSS '96. 1996 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, 1996

Multi-temporal microwave remote sensing techniques have been employed to obtain information on surface soil moisture dynamics during June 10-18, 1992 in the Little Washita watershed, Oklahoma. Analysis of remotely sensed data in conjunction with soils map revealed that changes in brightness temperature and soil moisture hold a direct relationship with soil texture. Areas identified by loam/silt loam are characterized by ...

It was verified that the "water- cloud" model can adequately represent the backscattering coefficients over winter wheat fields, during the entire growing season, as a function of canopy water content and surface soil moisture.

  • Application of microwave remotely sensed surface soil moisture for estimation of sub-surface soil hydraulic properties

    Multi-temporal microwave remote sensing techniques have been employed to obtain information on surface soil moisture dynamics during June 10-18, 1992 in the Little Washita watershed, Oklahoma. Analysis of remotely sensed data in conjunction with soils map revealed that changes in brightness temperature and soil moisture hold a direct relationship with soil texture. Areas identified by loam/silt loam are characterized by higher changes of total soil moisture and those of sand/sandy loam soils by remarkably lower amounts of change. Detailed study yielded valuable information on soil physical properties (soil texture) and saturated hydraulic conductivity (K/sub sat/). The Root Zone Water Quality Model has been employed to simulate soil water redistribution during the dry down period, and therefore to estimate profile soil properties. Results provided good relationships between surface soil moisture dynamics and profile K/sub sat/ values. It follows that temporal variability of surface soil moisture can be used as indicators of both surface and sub-surface soil properties. These findings have potential application of microwave remote sensing of soil moisture to obtain quick estimates of spatial distributions of soil properties for parameterization of mesoscale hydrologic and general circulation models.

  • The effect of topography on the SAR measurements of surface soil moisture

    The SIR-B (Shuttle Imaging Radar B) observations have established a good correlation between radar backscattering coefficient and surface soil moisture. Measurements from an airborne synthetic aperture radar (e.g., AIRSAR), on the other hand, have shown only a limited correlation between these parameters, even though a correction to allow for topographical variations was also attempted. This paper presents some new results from the AIRSAR flights over an agricultural area near Chickasha, Oklahoma. It was found that the changes in backscattering coefficients at P-, L-, and C-bands were, respectively, /spl sim/1-2 db, 2-3 db, and 5-6 db when soil moisture in the top 5-cm layer changed by /spl sim/0.13 g/cm/sup 3/. The change in L-band backscattering coefficients was at least 3-4 db less than that observed by SIR-B. Two out of three AIRSAR C-band images also gave a higher backscattering coefficient at HH than VV polarization, which is not the case for images at P- and L-bands. These observed features may be related to problems in AIRSAR calibration.<<ETX>>

  • The L-band PBMR measurements of surface soil moisture in FIFE

    The NASA Langley Research Center's L-band pushbroom microwave radiometer (PBMR) aboard the NASA C-130 aircraft was used to map surface soil moisture at and around the Konza Prairie Natural Research Area in Kansas during the four intensive field campaigns of FIFE in May-October 1987. A total of 11 measurements were made when soils were known to be saturated. This measurement was used for the calibration of the vegetation effect on the microwave absorption. Based on this calibration, the data from other measurements on other days were inverted to generate soil moisture maps. Good agreement was found when the estimated soil moisture values were compared with those independently measured on the ground at a number of widely separated locations. There was a slight bias between the estimated and measured values, the estimated soil moisture on the average being lower by about 1.8%.<<ETX>>

  • Wave tilt sounding of multilayered structures

    The relationship between the wave tilt and the electrical parameters of a multilayered structure is investigated. Particular emphasis is placed on the inverse problem associated with the sounding of planetary surfaces. An inversion technique, based on multifrequency wave tilt, is proposed and demonstrated with several computer models. There is close agreement between the electrical parameters used in the models and the inversion values.

  • Characterization of the Host Medium

    For a correct interpretation of the ground-penetrating radar (GPR) signal, it is important to have some estimation of the electromagnetic characteristics of the background medium. A complete characterization theoretically means a measure of the dielectric permittivity and of the magnetic permeability, both meant as complex quantities to account for losses and variables versus the frequency. In many cases, the propagation medium is a low-lossy medium; that is, the real part of the wavenumber is much larger than the imaginary part. The electromagnetic characteristics of the propagation medium depend on its chemical composition, its water content, its porosity, its mineralogy, and possibly its temperature. The measure of the propagation velocity of the electromagnetic waves in a homogeneous soil might be done, in principle, with a buried marker, similarly to what is described for the case of a wall.
