Short summary
Water is one of the most valuable resources and has an undeniable influence on every aspect of life. Being a very good indicator of the water cycle, the soil water content can be monitored by satellites from space. The region studied here is located in Benin, West Africa, where people have to face major water-related risks every year during the monsoon season. By adjusting the model simulations with satellite observations, river discharge and water table levels have greatly been improved.
