Soil moisture is a fundamental parameter required by many sectors (e.g. infrastructure, agriculture, flooding, fire risk) but there are no simple mechanisms by which it can be readily supplied to users.

This workshop will bring together UK academics and researchers working on topics related to soil moisture with commercial organisations wanting to use soil moisture information in their products and services. The aim of the workshop is to inform on the current state of the art for soil moisture retrieval (using satellite information, in-situ networks and models) and identify what is currently possible.

The workshop is open to all UK based researchers with expertise related to soil moisture and UK industry in the space sector or value added sector.
