The moisture

The moisture in the soil of this northern Tennessee farm is connected to the water in the river and the water vapour in the air through the hydrologic cycle. Because of this connection, soil moisture not only affects crops directly, but also indirectly by its impact on weather. Data from NASA's Aqua satellite will keep farmers informed about both the direct and indirect effects of soil moisture.
