Plans for Next Growing Season

We hope to carry out field experiments synchronous with some satellite through the study site in 2013. We will order the same type of SAR data and optical imagery such as MODIS, and Landsat 8.

Specific Project Objectives & Deliverables

The principle rice cropping systems in the study site is the double rice crop. Sowing of main rice takes place in late March and June, to be harvested in July. The second rice crop is sown in August and is harvested from late October to November. Thus, all the variables were measured once a month from April to November in 2013.

According to the study area is located in the coastal area, the sky is almost always covered by cloud. The rainfall is evenly distributed over the entire year. In 2013, the severe tropical storm has intensified into a typhoon and lash the area with heavy rain. Hence, the water level in the rice filed is higher than the normal situation.
