Paper Abstract

Methods for estimating profile soil moisture using remotely sensed surface moisture data are reviewed. Primary attention is given to four basic approaches: regression, knowledge-based, inversion, and combinations of remotely sensed data and water balance models. Results of ground-based and aircraft experiments using microwave radiometers for soil moisture measurements are discussed to illustrate the methods.
