Absolute Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture
This data product represents the weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly volumetric soil moisture (percent saturated soil) for the surface layer (<5 cm).
The data is produced from passive microwave satellite data collected by the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite and converted to soil moisture using version 6.50 of the SMOS soil moisture processor. The data are produced by the European Space Agency. The data are gridded to a resolution of 0.25 degrees. Data quality flags have been applied to remove areas where rainfall is present during the acquisition, where snow cover is detected and when Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) is above an acceptable threshold.
