  • H142 is the extension of H141 at a yearly frequency, from 2019 to 2021. It consists of reprocessed liquid soil moisture profile index for four different soil layers (covering the root zone from the surface to ~ 3 metres) generated by the offline ECMWF land surface data assimilation system with 24-hour assimilation windows. This product provides a consistent time series of both surface and root zone soil moisture with a daily global coverage, which is highly relevant for hydrological applications and water budget investigations.
