Progress in sensor technologies has allowed real-time monitoring of soil water. It is a challenge to model soil water content based on remote sensing data. Here, we retrieved and modeled surface soil moisture (SSM) at the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) stations using Sentinel-1 backscatter data from 2016 to 2018 and ancillary data. Empirica...

Net ecosystem exchange of CO2 (NEE) measurement was carried out in tropical lowland paddy at ICAR-National Rice Research Institute, Cuttack, Odisha, India, in 2015 using eddy covariance technique with the objective to assess the variation of NEE of CO2 in lowland paddy and to find out the most suitable model for better partitioning of net ecosystem...
Article
The potential of a stepwise fusion of proximally sensed portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) spectra and electromagnetic induction (EMI) with remote Sentinel-2 bands and a digital elevation model (DEM) was investigated for predicting soil physicochemical properties in pedons and across a heterogeneous 80-ha crop field in Wisconsin, USA. We found that...

Accurate measurements of actual evapotranspiration (ETa) and crop coefficients (Kc) are essential to know crop water requirements and to improve irrigation scheduling. The eddy covariance (EC) technique is increasingly being used to do so. Precise information on Kc for lowland rice is essential for local- and regional-scale irrigation planning but...
Article
Drought is a recurring, complex, and extreme climatic phenomenon characterized by subnormal precipitation for months to years triggering negative impacts on agriculture, energy, tourism, recreation, and transportation sectors. Agricultural drought assessment is based on a deficit of soil moisture (SM) during the plant-growing season, whereas meteor...

Drought is a recurring and extreme hydroclimatic hazard with serious impacts on agriculture and overall society. Delineation and forecasting of agricultural and meteorological drought are essential for water resource management and sustainable crop production. Agricultural drought assessment is defined as the deficit of root-zone soil moisture (RZS...
Preprint
Full-text available
Consecutive five-year long eddy covariance measurements in a lowland tropical rice-rice system were used to investigate the impacts of gross primary productivity (GPP), climate drivers and ecosystem responses (i.e. ecosystem respiration, RE) on the inter-annual variability (IAV) of the net ecosystem exchange (NEE), which is directly related to the...
Article
Full-text available
Maximum and minimum temperatures play an important role in determining yield of rice crop. Yield anomaly of rice under different nutrient management practices was analyzed in a long-term rice–rice system with respect to maximum and minimum temperatures. The treatments included applications of inorganic sources of nutrients (NPK), organic sources of...
Article
Full-text available
A two-year (2015 and 2016) field experiment was carried out to study the surface energy budget and energy balance closure (EBC) in a tropical lowland rice paddy in Cuttack, India. Maintenance of a standing water layer in lowland irrigated rice ecosystem makes it unique and this strongly influences the surface energy balance which may alter the surf...

Monitoring surface soil moisture (SSM) dynamics at finer spatio-temporal resolutions (e.g. daily and < 1 km) is essential for improving irrigation and water use efficiency, enhancing global food security and understanding and forecasting eco-hydrological system dynamics under climate change (Figure 1). Problem • Little research has been done to dev...

A field experiment was conducted at Indian Council of Agricultural Research-National Rice Research Institute, Cuttack, Odisha, India in the dry seasons of 2015 and 2016 to assess the water vapor flux (FH2O) and its relationship with other climatic variables. The FH2O and climatic variables were measured by an eddy covariance system and a micrometeo...

A field experiment was conducted in 2015 to study the land surface energy fluxes from tropical lowland rice paddy in eastern India with an objective to determine the mass, momentum, and energy exchange rates between rice paddies and the atmosphere. All the land surface energy fluxes were measured by eddy covariance (EC) system (make Campbell Scient...

Bioindicators are used to identify and monitor soil quality. Degraded soils refers to various altered properties such as physically-poor soils, C- and nutrient-deficient soils, waterlogged soils, salt-affected soils, and soils polluted by heavy metals and pesticides. Here we review degraded soils and bioindicators using plants, microbes and other l...

Lowland tropical rice-rice system has a unique micrometrological characteristic that affects both energy component and net ecosystem energy. Periodic and seasonal variations of methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), and energy exchange from irrigated lowland rice-rice ecosystem were studied using open-path eddy covariance (EC) system during the dry (...

Article
Different land use management practices e.g. native forest vegetation, pastures and the agricultural management practices (e.g. tillage, cropping system, crop residue mulching and fertilizer and manure application) influence the soil organic carbon pools, which has short term and long term implications on soil carbon dynamics. Field experiments wer...

Water is one of the important elements responsible for life on earth. Globally, three major sectors i.e. agriculture, domestic consumption, and industry compete for water. India presently has the world's second-largest population and there is a net export of agricultural products from India, which is likely to continue. These developments will lead...

The insect problem is accentuated in intensive rice cropping where the insects occur throughout the year in overlapping generations. In India, about a dozen of insect species are of major importance in rice but the economic damage caused by these species varies greatly from field to field and from year to year. Insect pests cause about 10-15 per ce...

The eddy covariance (EC) instrument measures the vertical flux of heat (latent and sensible heat), water vapor, or other gasses (e.g., methane, CO2). Flux is calculated as a covariance of instantaneous deviations in vertical wind speed and instantaneous deviations in the entity of interest. This method relies on the prevalence of turbulent transpor...

Question
We need a fine spatial and temporal resolution long-term global precipitation dataset for 2001-2020 for the global boreal biome (North Americal + Eurasia). Is there any such dataset available? Thanks.
Question
How should one use a cloud mask on Google Earth Engine (GEE)/R for the MODIS FireMask data? The mask should address the cloud, QA (quality band), and other unnecessary bands of the "MODIS/006/MOD14A2" dataset (link given below).
Thank you.
Question
How eddy covariance LE data can be used to precisely estimate ET over a fetch region? Can remote sensing ET estimate be better if we use LE instead of H in calculation?
