Understanding L-band gloss temperatures in multi-layer forest environments with a view to improving soil moisture estimation
Using a first-order physical diffusion model based on radiative transfer theory, the work undertaken was carried out to identify the potential for estimating soil moisture on forest cover. To do this, a radiometric characterization of the different layers constituting these media was undertaken. These layers include the tree layer, the undergrowth layer, and the organic layers (humus, litter) covering the mineral soil.
