|Abstract||A time-series-based methodology has been used for the estimation of soil moisture from AMSR-E 10.7-GHz H-polarized brightness temperature over India. The estimated soil moisture has been validated with in situ soil moisture and compared with the NSIDC AMSR-E soil moisture product. The soil moisture estimated using the present algorithm shows improvement over NSIDC soil moisture products over India. The present algorithm shows an root-mean-squared error of 8.8% with in situ soil moisture, which is 12.9% for the NSIDC products over Indian agromet stations. The sensitivity in the soil moisture is captured well from the present algorithm; however, it is limited to regions with low to moderate vegetation cover having low temporal variability. The algorithm is location specific that is tuned over India to provide better estimates than achievable using the NSIDC global algorithm. This will help in improving the mesoscale monsoon prediction of rainfall over India.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
