This work presents a novel technique for the determination of soil moisture obtaining 2-D Soil Moisture (SM) information with a single instrument. Both the instrument and the retrieval algorithm used, which is based on inferring the reflection coefficient of the terrain by direct and forward scattering polarimetric measurements of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Signals, are briefly described. Some preliminary results of a field campaign performed on La Pobla de Mafumet (Tarragona, Spain) are presented. This instrument and retrieval algorithm can be used for different applications, such as, an input for the irrigation algorithm (Smart-Irrigation) or forest fire prevention among others.
