moisture sensing is set up and ready to go. This is in collaboration
with Forschungszentrum J├╝lich (Germany), UPC/BarcelonaTech (Spain) and University of Southern Queensland (Australia).
The buggy will be used to make an intercomparison of near-surface soil
moisture measurements from our portable Hydraprobe Data Aquisition
System and soil moisture measurements derived from an L-band radiometry
system known as ELBARA III, a GNSS reflectometry system known as LARGO,
TIR and other optical bands in the visible to shortwave infrared bands,
EM38 and EMI. We are also planning to compare with a COSMOS Rover system
of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO, Australia) if it arrives in time.
