Soil Water Content

by | Feb 26, 2024

Soil Water Content (SWC) is the amount of water stored in the upper layers of soil and is given as water volume per cubic meter of soil. This information can be separated into layers in the soil, or provided as a bulk statistic.

To generate SWC maps at different soil depths, radar satellite imagery is analysed and SWC is derived from the observed change in backscattering.
