Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture

Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture This data series represents the volumetric soil moisture (percent saturated soil) for the surface layer (<5 cm). The data is created daily and is averaged for the ISO standard week and month. 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. 2021-07-27 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyDrainageWaterSatellitesSoilSoil qualityRemote sensingHydrology Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/en/ISO_19131_Percent_Saturated_Surface_Soil_Moisture_Data_Product_Specification.pdf The SMOS Soil Moisture Retrieval AlgorithmPDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/en/Kerr2012_TGRS.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/aafcPsssm/fr/Pourcentage_de_saturation_en_eau_de_la_surface_du_sol_ISO_19131.pdf Pre-packaged GeoTIF files (No linguistic component)GeoTIF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/data_donnees/geo/aafcPsssm/tif/ Pre-packaged Maps (Bilingual)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/maps_cartes/aafcPsssm/ Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture from SMOS Satellite Data (English)HTML https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/psssm Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture from SMOS Satellite Data (French)HTML https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/psess Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/psssm_monthly_anomaly/ImageServer Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/psssm_monthly_anomaly/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Weekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/psssm_weekly_anomaly/ImageServer Weekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/psssm_weekly_anomaly/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Weekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/psess_hebdomadaire_anomalies/ImageServer Weekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/psess_hebdomadaire_anomalies/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/psess_mensuel_anomalies/ImageServer Monthly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/psess_mensuel_anomalies/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Biweekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/psssm_biweekly_anomaly/ImageServer Biweekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/servicesimage/psess_quinzaine_anomalies/ImageServer Biweekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/servicesimage/psess_quinzaine_anomalies/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Biweekly Percent Saturated Surface Soil Moisture AnomaliesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/psssm_biweekly_anomaly/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS
