Review of Soil Moisture and Plant Water Stress Models Based on Satellite Thermal Imagery


Title variants

Languages of publication



The paper analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of the most commonly used groups of models of soil moisture and plant water stress based on satellite thermal imagery. We present a simple proof of linking NDTI and CWSI indicators with plants water stress and quantitative justification for the shape of the points cloud on the chart Ts-NDVI.
