Research Project: Estimating Soil Moisture Content with Windsat and Remotely Sensed Vegetation Water Content

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-12660-013-19
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Mar 07, 2014
End Date: Sep 30, 2015

Objective:
Determine total vegetation water content over the summer of 2014 at USDA-ARS Long-term Agro-Ecosystem Research (LTAR) Network, Lower Chesapeake Bay LTAR (Choptank River watershed, Maryland).

Approach:
Conduct field sampling for leaf and stem water content of corn, soybean, forage, and wooded areas in the Choptank River watershed, and map out vegetation water content over study area using satellite imagery. These maps will be delivered to the Naval Research Laboratory.
