The EUMETCast Full dissemination in NetCDF of the Soil Moisture product H26 (Metop ASCAT NRT Root Zone Soil Moisture Profile Index 10km resolution) „Operational“ product, will start on the 24/03/2022. This product supplies the analysed liquid soil moisture profile index for four different soil layers (covering the root zone from the surface to ~ 3metres) generated by the ECMWF soil moisture assimilation system at 24 hour time steps. It takes the heritage from H14 which was at lower resolution and longer timeliness.
The H14 (SM-DAS-2) NRT product will be discontinued in approximately one year. A specific date for the H14 discontinuation will be given in due course.
