Format: Poster Topical Session
Keywords: evapotranspiration, hydraulic properties, soil moisture and water flux

Session Description: The rapid technological evolution of airborne (e.g., UAVs, PLMR2, AirMOSS) and satellite remote sensing techniques (e.g., Landsat, Sentinel, SMAP) as well as field-based and laboratory proximal sensing methods (e.g., hyperspectral imaging, ground penetrating radar, x-ray computed tomography, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, electromagnetic induction surveys, and cosmic-ray neutron monitoring) provides exciting new tools for soil physics and hydrology research. Proximal and remote sensing methods have shown great potential for measurement of soil properties, state variables, and fluxes. This session will highlight recent advances in proximal and remote sensing methods and demonstrate their utility for characterization of soil properties and processes.
