CASE STUDIES

Demonstration projects for DRYMON since 1997:
- DRYMON for MetOp: soil moisture and crop yield & soil moisture and river discharge, 2006-2009
- GEOLAND: a yield observatory for Europe and other large area, 2003-2007
- VITOSCAT: DRYMON indices for water limited C-fix, 2001-2005
- CLIMSCAT: scat derived soil moisture for meteorological and climatological purposes, 2002-2003
- SCIC: Crop Yield Forecasting in China, 2000-2002
- FAOSCAT: DRYMON potential for use in FAO's ARTEMIS early warning system
- SCATYIELD: Crop Monitoring in Russia and West Africa, 1998-2000
- SCATMALI: Drought Monitoring in Mali, 1997-1998

Five of these projects are presented as executive summaries (see the links at the left).

SWI development over the year 1992 in China. The SWI is a trend indicator of the moisture conditions of the 0-100 cm soil layer, derived from the remotely sensed surface wetness information. It is a relative measure ranging from 0 to 100%, where 0% represents dry soil conditions and 100% represents wet conditions.
