Research Summary

PhD Title is: Improving Soil Moisture Estimations Using Open Source GNSS Reflectometry Data Fusion

"My PhD revolves around improving surface soil moisture estimations by combining GNSS Reflectometry data with other spaceborne sensors as well as ancillary vegetation and topographic data, all based on open source data and methodologies. The overall aim is to create a soil moisture product with the high temporal and spatial resolution required for humanitarian and disaster risk use cases. This data fusion is based on an Artificial Neural Network architecture."

Supervised by Dr Paul Blunt, Dr Stephen Grebby and Prof Stuart Marsh.
