PIERS2018 Toyama Focus/Special Sessions  
5_FocusSession.SC5: Remote Sensing of Soil Moisture
Organized by Dr. Steven K. Chan (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology) and Dr. Rajat Bindlish (NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center)
Session's Information:
Microwave remote sensing has been demonstrated as an important tool for quantitative monitoring of soil moisture and other related geophysical properties. Currently available sensors suitable for soil moisture sensing include PALSAR-2/ALOS-2, Radarsat-2, Sentinel-1, Metop/ASCAT, SSM/I, Windsat, GCOM-W/AMSR2, GPM/GMI, SMOS, and SMAP. Future missions will further extend the capabilities of microwave remote sensing of soil moisture to a wide range of land applications. This session seeks papers that contribute to 1) improving our understanding of 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) field experiments for validation of microwave models, inversion algorithms, and satellite data products.
