Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture This data product represents the 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 6.20 of the SMOS soil moisture processor. The data are produced by the European Space Agency and obtained under a Category 1 proposal for Level 2 soil moisture data. 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. 2015-03-06 2018-07-20 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologySoilSoil qualityRemote sensingHydrologyDrainageSatellitesWater Data Product Specification (English)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/en/ISO_19131_Percent_Saturated_Surface_Soil_Moisture_Data_Product_Specification.pdf The SMOS Soil Moisture Retrieval AlgorithmPDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/en/Kerr2012_TGRS.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/fr/Pourcentage_de_saturation_en_eau_de_la_surface_du_sol_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged GeoTIF filesGeoTIF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/data_donnees/geo/aafcPsssm/tif/absolute/ Pre-packaged MapsPDF http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/maps_cartes/aafcPsssm/absolute/ Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil MoistureWMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/psssm_monthly_absolute/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil MoistureWMS https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/psess_mensuel/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS&layers=0&legend_format=image/png Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture from SMOS Satellite DataHTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/psssm Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture from SMOS Satellite DataHTML http://www.agr.gc.ca/atlas/psess Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil MoistureESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/psssm_monthly_absolute/ImageServer Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil MoistureESRI REST https://www5.agr.gc.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/psess_mensuel/ImageServer
