SOIL MOISTURE MONITORING OF AGRICULTURAL FIELDS IN BURKINA FASO USING DUAL POLARIZED SENTINEL-1A DATA
Paper i proceeding, 2019

We investigated the correlation between backscatter and soil moisture considering precipitation and crop effects using dual polarized Sentinel-1A data. The analyzed data consist of a time-series of 38 Sentinel-1A GRD images acquired on a 12-days repeat cycle from July 2017 to October 2018 over Sapone in Burkina Faso. We show that the temporal change of backscatter corresponds to the soil moisture content rather than crops.
