Over the past few decades, soil monitoring has become increasingly important. Environmental factors such as climate change, dwindling water resources, and threatened habitats are driving the need to monitor the environment and implement better policies to protect it. Many natural processes in the environment are driven by or in some ways related to soil hydrological processes. Monitoring soil moisture conditions provides important information for the protection of, and in the understanding of local and regional water resources.

Protecting the environment and preserving natural resources is vital to quality of life, sustainable development and biodiversity. Climate change, degradation of habitats and depletion of natural resources are significant risks to economic well-being and may affect the resilience of communities and ecosystems. Satellite Earth observation is a core information source for providing information on the state and change of the environment. Geospatial solutions effectively support environmental monitoring and management and help mitigating and adapting to the effects of economic growth and climate change.
