This paper investigates a novel technique based on Fuzzy C means (FCM) algorithm and Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) to estimate soil moisture using cosmic ray soil moisture probes deployed across Australia. These probes are a brand new sensing technology still being evaluated. Preliminary results indicate ANFIS is able to estimate soil moisture with 90% accuracy.
