Remote Sensing, Vol. 14, Pages 3801: Soil Moisture Mapping with Moisture-Related Indices, OPTRAM, and an Integrated Random Forest-OPTRAM Algorithm from Landsat 8 Images (Remote Sensing)
 


Remote sensing tools have been extensively used for large-scale soil moisture (SM) mapping in recent years, using Landsat satellite images. Rainfall, soil clay percentage, and the standardized precipitation index play key roles in determining the moisture content of crop fields. The objective of this study was to (i) calculate and determine the effectiveness of moisture-related indices in predicting surface SM, (ii) predict surface SM from satellite images using the Optical Trapezoid Model (OPTRAM), and (iii) evaluate if the OPTRAM predictions can be improved by incorporating weather station, soil, and crop data with a random forest algorithm. The ENVI® platform was used to create moisture-related indices maps, and the Google Earth Engine (GEE) was used to prepare OPTRAM maps. The results showed a very weak relationship between the moisture-related indices and surface SM content where r2 and slopes were ˂0.10 and ˂0.20, respectively. OPTRAM SM, when compared with in situ surface moisture, showed weak relationship with regression values ˂0.2. Surface SM was then predicted using random forest regression using OPTRAM moisture values, rainfall, and the standardized precipitation index (SPI), and percent clay showed high goodness of fit (r2 = 0.69) and low root mean square error (RMSE = 0.053 m3 m−3).
