University of Surrey soil moisture simulation capability allows us to use satellite meteorological data to model and estimate the root-zone soil moisture in crop fields.

This is an important added value, as Earth Observation (EO) soil moisture products only inform of the moisture at the surface (top 5 cm) soil layer at a course spatial resolution (in the order of a few kilometres). However, farmers and growers need to know the moisture in their fields at the plants’ root depth to manage their crops effectively. This capability enables that by combining EO and hydrological modelling.
