Abstract: The motto of this work is to evaluate retrieval of surface soil moisture (5 cm) using Sentinel-1a C-band data Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). Data for this study is collected from Yanco Study site, Australia. Yanco study site consists of 37 soil moisture measuring stations at every 20 min interval for various soil depths and it also provides other Hydro-Meteorological information. SAR backscattered energy is a function of soil roughness and soil moisture. Surface roughness is eliminated using change detection approach. The R2 performance statistics revealed that between Backscattered energy and NDVI there is no relation. Volumetric soil moisture and backscattered energy showed a positive correlation with R2 = 0.57 and 0.43 for VH and VV polarization. Dielectric constant also showed a positive correlation with backscattered energy having R2 = 0.62 and 0.38 for VH and VV polarization respectively. By taking into account of all these affecting parameters, a regional Semi-empirical model is developed to retrieve surface Soil moisture over the study area. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2020.
