Remote sensing provides a means of observing hydrological state variables over large areas. The ones which we will consider is this paper are: land surface temperature from thermal infrared data, surface soil moisture from passive microwave data, snow cover and water equivalent using both visible and microwave data, water quality using visible and near infrared data, landscape cover using both visible and near infrared data and landscape surface roughness using lidar.
