This paper aims to offer a systematic review of this Ts/VI (surface temperature/vegetation index) methods. Prior to the review, the biophysical meanings and properties encapsulated in the Ts/VI feature space is elucidated, since these represent the building block upon which all the Ts/VI methods described herein are based. The overview of the Ts/VI methods is also very timely, as one such method is being scheduled in the operational retrieval of surface soil moisture content by the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS), in a series of satellite platforms due to be launched in the next 12 years starting from 2016
