Evaluation of the portability of an EOF-based method to downscale soil moisture patterns based on topographical attributes
Soil moisture influences many hydrologic applications including agriculture, land management, and flood prediction. Most remote-sensing methods that estimate soil moisture produce coarse-resolution patterns, so methods are required to downscale such patterns to the resolutions required by these applications (e.g., 10-30 m grid cells). At such resolutions, topography is known to impact soil moisture patterns. Although methods have been proposed to downscale soil moisture based on topography, they usually require the availability of past high-resolution soil moisture patterns from the application ...
