Due to climate change, extreme phenomena like droughts are going to be intensified. Even though droughts in agriculture have been studied, regarding urban environment their consequences are rather unexplored. Cities are susceptible to droughts and the estimation of their vulnerability is the first step for their protection. The objective of this...

In this study, an unsupervised classification approach is used to investigate and characterize the spatial and temporal variability of MetOp-A ASCAT backscatter (σ◦) and the TUW SMR vegetation parameters across mainland France between 2007 and 2017. Currently, soil moisture data is retrieved from ASCAT backscatter measurements using the TU Wien...

Soil Moisture is a key hydrological variable since it controls the interactions between the atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere. It is responsible for the partitioning of precipitation into evaporation, transpiration, percolation and run-off. Soil Moisture monitoring is used to indicate droughts in vegetated areas and is an important parameter...

Methodology <br/>Agriculture is an important sector to provide in our needs. Since 2000, the arable land per farmer increased with 66%. To help farmers managing their increasing amount of arable land, it is important to develop new techniques in example based on remote sensing data. One of the key parameters for agricultural management is the...

The growing world population and climate change have resulted in increasing stress on the Earth’s ecosystems. Especially the overexploitation of agricultural land, overgrazing and extreme droughts have resulted in land degradation, often called desertification. This leads to the disappearing of natural vegetation, the loss of soil quality, lower...

Climate variability in temperature and precipitation has the potential to exacerbate the water scarcity problems already present in many parts of Sub-Saharan Sudan. A socio-hydrological study was carried out to determine the extent to which sorghum, the dominant rain-fed crop in Sudan, is susceptible to this climate variability and how this...

This thesis discusses the applicability of assimilation of artificial SMAP data into a quasi steady state hydrological model to improve soil moisture estimates. The model used for this research was SIMGRO and since no real SMAP data were available at the time of the research, artificial SMAP data were used. The ensemble Kalman filter was used to...

The lack of soil moisture – feedback understanding remains a large source of uncertainty for land-atmosphere coupled models. Better understanding requires observational studies. Observational studies on soil moisture – precipitation feedback in Illinois have shown contradictory results based on different approaches. This paper extends earlier...

Soil moisture is important for the Volta Basin. However, in-situ measurements of soil moisture in the Volta Basin are scarce, only remote sensing observations are available. Remote sensing observations are also provided with limited temporal and spatial resolutions. Also capabilities of the sensors are limited (e.g measuring soil moisture...
