The Institute of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (I.P.F.) is one of the leading research groups In radar remote sensing for soil moisture retrieval and monitoring of other land-surface hydrologic processes (wetlands, freeze/thaw status).
On behalf of EUMETSAT and as partner of various Satellite Application Facilities (Hydrology SAF, NWP SAF, Land SAF) it has developed software for near-real-time processing of MetOp ASCAT data, to obtain a global surface soil moisture product and further value-added soil moisture products. The I.P.F. has also built up processing chains for ENVISAT ASAR ScanSAR, for delivering hydrologic land surface products (1 km soil moisture products, soil moisture scaling layer, and dynamic wetland information).
TUW is coordinating work package 5 of PAGE21: Remote Sensing and multiscale integration.
