- The study area is the Xilin River basin. Remote sensing approach was used to retrieve soil moisture content based on the surface water capacity index by using MODIS images from July 2000 to July 2012. This can reflect the scope, extent and development of the drought in the study area in a timely and accurate manner. It is of great significance to develop scientific and reasonable measures of drought control and drought resistance. The results show that the spatial distribution of soil moisture content is consistent with the surface state. The soil moisture content in the upper reaches is higher than in the middle and lower reaches. In the time distribution, the soil moisture content of fifteen years from 2000 to 2014 is no fixed trend. The trend of soil moisture content is consistent with precipitation.
