The P-band radar has successfully completed two observations each over Metolius Pine, Oregon and BERMS, Saskatchewan. There is one more flight over each site left before heading back to Houston, TX. Weather conditions have been cooperating at both sites. Soil moisture at BERMS was wet (20-30 percent moisture) due to rain in the preceding week. The in-ground sensors observed a drying trend, which will be a good test for the sensitivity of the soil moisture retrieval algorithm.
