VWC (kg/[m.sup.2]) is one of the most important parameters for the successful retrieval of SMC from microwave remote sensing observations .
The NDWI is a widely used and reliable indicator to assess the vegetation water status, which is sensitive to changes in VWC .
VWC was measured in 38 fields at the first sampling point.
This study focuses on women's participation in development activities organized by NGO, especially that in VWC and PRA run by the WASH program.
whether their opinions were valued and taken into consideration, 3) women's involvement, i.e., whether they were performing any specific tasks during the meetings, and 4) basic attendance at VWC meetings.
Four VWC meetings were observed, including two from Feni and another two from Srimongal.
where [R.sub.sh] is measured heterotrophic respiration rate ([micro]mol C[O.sub.2] [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]); [T.sub.s] is soil temperature ([degrees]C) at 10 cm depth; VWC is volumetric water content (%) at 10 cm depth; and [R.sub.10], [Q.sub.10], a, b and c are fitted parameters.
However, VWC did not follow the same trend as rainfall, mostly because of the different soil textures and densities at each site.
Use of Eqn 2 to relate [R.sub.sh] rates to VWC at the different host sites did not result in improved prediction models compared with Eqn 1.
2005), in which VWC was monitored using WCR in 3 soil depths.
During the lysimeter experiment, VWC was recorded using WCRs in the top 3 horizons of each of the soils.
Nine (Pumice and Gley Soils) or 12 (Allophanic and Recent Soils) VWC steps were used for establishing the calibration equations.
