Technical Abstract: Land applications, in particular soil moisture retrieval, have been hampered by the lack of low frequency passive microwave observations and the coarse spatial resolution of existing sensors. The next decade could see several improved operational and exploratory missions using new technologies as well as innovative disaggregation and data fusion approaches that could lead the way to an order of magnitude improvement in spatial resolution
