In the paper are analyzed theoretical approaches and results of airborne remote sensing complex ACRS-30 side-looking
Ka-band radar, an aerial camera and thermal IR scanner joint of waterlogged soils monitoring, realized sequentially
during day and night time of dry autumn season. A good mutual supplement video, thermal infrared and microwave
data to the underfloodings manifestations identification.
Keywords: moisture, soil, remote sensing, IR and microwave data, data processing
