Project overview

The work aims at developing an operational tool for real-time forecast of irrigation water requirements to support parsimonious water management providing real-time and forecasted soil moisture behavior at high spatial and temporal resolutions with forecast horizons from few up to thirty days.

The system combines satellite monitoring of soil moisture and of evaporative fluxes, quantitative meteorological forecast and detailed distributed hydrological modelling of soil water balance and crop water needs, considering the economic impacts of water savings.

The system will be a prototype version of a world wide web platform, that will support users in parsimonious irrigation water management from water authorities to single farm.
