Soil Moisture 101: What It Means and How It's Measured

February 22, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Online

The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and the National Weather Service (NWS) are hosting two webinars on soil moisture data and applications. These webinars are intended to help NWS operational forecasters and other weather & climate service providers better understand soil moisture monitoring and its practical applications.

The first webinar will provide an overview of soil moisture monitoring and interpretation, including a review of the three main techniques for estimating soil moisture conditions: in situ ground-based systems, satellite measurements, and land surface model outputs.
