PIERS2016 Shanghai Focus/Special Sessions  
5_FocusSession.SC5: Microwave Remote Sensing of Soil Moisture
Organized by Dr. Steven K. Chan (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology) and Dr. Alicia T. Joseph (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center)
Session's Information:
Microwave remote sensing has been demonstrated as the important tool for the quantitative monitoring soil moisture and other properties. The currently available sensors include PALSAR-2/ALOS-2, Radarsat-2, Sentinel-1, FY-3, SSM/I, Windsat, SMOS, GCOM-W, GPM, and SMAP. Future missions will further enhance the capabilities of microwave remote sensing in a wider range of land applications. This session seeks papers that can contribute to 1) improving our understanding in modeling microwave signals and their responses to surface soil moisture and vegetation properties; 2) techniques for the retrieval of soil moisture using satellite observations; 3) the field experiments for validation of microwave models and inversion algorithms.
