H101:
Recent advances of the cosmic-ray neutron probe





Session ID#: 22459

Session Description:
The cosmic-ray neutron probe technology is approaching 10 years of age. To date there are over 200 fixed probes and 10 rovers operating on 6 continents. Given the hectometer-scale measurement area, soil moisture estimates from the existing probe network are gaining traction as a useful dataset for validation of remote sensing products and use in land surface modelling. The fundamental theory of how the probe works, what is measured, and how to calibrate the probe dominated early studies. For this session we invite contributions on: 1) recent updates to the technology, 2) applications in novel settings including agriculture management, as well as vegetation and snow detection, 3) validation of remote sensing products, and 4) incorporation into land surface modelling.
