Investigating the Role of Antecedent SMAP Satellite Soil Moisture, Radar Rainfall and MODIS Vegetation on Runoff Production in an Agricultural Region

The goal of the paper is to confirm relationships identified by a paper written in 2017 (Crow et al.) that relates antecedent soil moisture to runoff production.

The paper investigates total runoff production during individual rainfall-runoff events in agricultural landscapes as a function of antecedent soil moisture, total rainfall, and vegetation cover for catchments in Iowa.
