Tracking soil moisture across North America with AirMOSS

AirMOSS radar returns at BERMS, Saskatchewan, on April 22, 2013, rendered as a color image.

AirMOSS radar returns at the BERMS site in Saskatchewan, Canada, on April 22, 2013, rendered as a color image. The AirMOSS radar is a P-band fully polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) that can penetrate through vegetation and soil to depths of approximately 1.2 meters.

AirMOSS used ultra-high frequency synthetic aperture radar to measure root-zone soil moisture at sites across North America from Canada to Costa Rica.
