Abstract

Soil moisture content was assessed by an airborne scatterometer in Chernobyl disaster area and Negev desert. For each test site the scatterometers were calibrated by mounting them above a typical soil for the region for several days. The soil below was wetted to field capacity and then left to dry naturally after mounting the scatterometer. Ground measurements were taken periodically as moisture decreases, and then compared with concurrent scatterometer measurements providing a calibration curve.
