As part of ESA’s TIGER initiative, South African scientists exploited satellite data to map soil moisture conditions, or Soil Saturation Index (SSI). This map shows the difference between soil moisture in November of 2010 and 2011, with the southeast experiencing drier condition than the previous year. SSI mapping can be useful in the agricultural sector and for flood risk assessments.
