Soil Moisture - Products

SSM-ASCAT-NRT-DIS (H08)
Maps of the soil moisture content in the surface layer (0-2 cm) generated from the Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) limited to the H SAF area, processed shortly after each satellite orbit completion. It is generated by disaggregating the Metop-B ASCAT NRT soil moisture 25 km sampling product, to 0.5-km sampling with downscaling parameters derived from ENVISAT ASAR (C-band). DETAIL DOWNLOAD
SM-DAS-2 (H14)
Liquid soil moisture profile index for four different soil layers generated by the ECMWF soil moisture assimilation system at 24h time steps. Soil moisture fields are based on a modelled first guess, the screen-level temperature and humidity analyses, and the ASCAT-derived surface soil moisture. DETAIL DOWNLOAD
SSM-ASCAT-B-NRT-O12.5 (H16)
Soil moisture content in the surface layer (0.5-2 cm) express in degree of saturation (0 – 100 %) generated from ASCAT Metop-B at 12.5 Km sampling, processed shortly after each satellite orbit completion. Commitment and validation restricted to following conditions: low to moderate vegetation regimes, unfrozen and no snow, low to moderate topographic variations and no wetlands and coastal areas.

DATA RECORDS
Reprocessed liquid soil moisture profile index for four different soil layers (covering the root zone from the surface to ~3 meters) generated by the offline ECMWF land surface data assimilation system at 24h time steps. These products provide daily global coverage time series from 1992 of both surface and root zone soil moisture.
