Soil surface wetness is continuously observed over Australia by satellites using passive microwave (e.g., SMOS, AMSR2) and radar instruments (e.g., ASCAT) as well as available from several models. They also provide information of fuel litter moisture content. This project will analyse which of these data can be used to improve application of operational fire danger rating systems such as the McArthur Forest Fire Danger index.
