Spatial and temporal variability of soil moisture over India using IRS P4 MSMR data
Abstract:The brightness temperature data measured by the multi‐frequency scanning microwave radiometer (MSMR) data has been analysed over the Indian subcontinent to deduce the seasonal and monthly variations of soil moisture. The present results show the spatial variations of soil moisture over the Indian region which is affected by the monsoon and show strong variability over different geological terrains.
