Paper Abstract

Algorithms to estimate soil moisture using Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR) data and experiments to determine their validity have been developed. Since estimations of soil moisture using AMSR data are affected by vegetation moisture content, determination of the quantity and distribution of vegetation is necessary. A variety of information can be obtained simultaneously using optical sensors such as Global Imager (GLI). In this study, we attempted to estimate plant water content using the vegetation index obtained with GLI to determine its sensitivity to vegetation coverage as well as the relationships among vegetation coverage, biomass and plant water content based on field survey data.
