  • ABoVE: Active Layer Thickness from Remote Sensing Permafrost Model, Alaska, 2001-2015

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C2143402571-ORNL_CLOUD.xml
    Description:

    This dataset provides annual estimates of active layer thickness (ALT) at 1 km resolution across Alaska from 2001-2015. The ALT was estimated using a remote sensing-based soil process model incorporating global satellite data from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) land surface temperature (LST) and snow cover extent (SCE), and Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) satellite soil moisture records. The study area covers the majority land area of Alaska except for areas of perennial ice/snow cover or open water. The ALT was defined as the maximum soil thawing depth throughout the year. The mean ALT and mean uncertainty from 2001 to 2015 are also provided.

  • JPL SMAP Level 2B CAP Sea Surface Salinity V5.0 Validated Dataset

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C2208420167-POCLOUD.xml
    Description:

    This is the PI-produced JPL SMAP-SSS V5.0, level 2B CAP, validated sea surface salinity (SSS) and extreme winds orbital/swath product from the NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory. It is based on the Combined Active-Passive (CAP) retrieval algorithm developed at JPL originally in the context of Aquarius/SAC-D and now extended to SMAP. JPL SMAP V5.0 SSS is based on the newly released SMAP V5 Level-1 Brightness Temperatures (TB). An enhanced calibration methodology has been applied to the brightness temperatures, which improves absolute radiometric calibration and reduces the biases between ascending and descending passes. The improved SMAP TB Level 1 TB will enhance the use of SMAP Level-1 data for other applications, such as sea surface salinity and winds. The JPL SMAP-SSS L2B CAP product includes data for a range of parameters: derived SMAP sea surface salinity, SSS uncertainty and wind speed/direction data for extreme winds, brightness temperatures for each radiometer polarization, ancillary reference surface salinity, ice concentration, wind and wave height data, quality flags, and navigation data. Each data file covers one 98-minute orbit (15 files per day). Data begins on April 1,2015 and is ongoing, with a 3 day latency in processing and availability. Observations are global in extent and provided at 25km swath grid with an approximate spatial resolution of 60 km. The SMAP satellite is in a near-polar orbit at an inclination of 98 degrees and an altitude of 685 km. It has an ascending node time of 6 pm and is sun-synchronous. With its 1000km swath, SMAP achieves global coverage in approximately 3 days, but has an exact orbit repeat cycle of 8 days. On board Instruments include a highly sensitive L-band radiometer operating at 1.41GHz and an L-band 1.26GHz radar sensor providing complementary active and passive sensing capabilities. Malfunction of the SMAP scatterometer on 7 July, 2015, has necessitated the use of collocated wind speed for the surface roughness correction required for the surface salinity retrieval.

  • Multi-Mission Optimally Interpolated Sea Surface Salinity Global Dataset V1

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C2095055342-POCLOUD.xml
    Description:

    This is a level 4 product on a 0.25-degree spatial and 4-day temporal grid. The product is derived from the level 2 swath data of three satellite missions: the Aquarius/SAC-D, Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) and Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) using Optimal Interpolation (OI) with a 7-day decorrelation time scale. The product offers a continuous record from August 28, 2011 to present by concatenating the measurements from Aquarius (September 2011 - June 2015) and SMAP (April 2015 present). ESAs SMOS data was used to fill the gap in SMAP data between June and July 2019, when the SMAP satellite was in a safe mode. The two-month overlap (April - June 2015) between Aquarius and SMAP was used to ensure consistency and continuity in data record. The product covers the global ocean, including the Arctic and Antarctic in the areas free of sea ice, but does not cover internal seas such as Mediterranean and Baltic Sea. In-situ salinity from Argo floats and moored buoys are used to derive a large-scale bias correction and to ensure consistency and accuracy of the OISSS dataset. This dataset is produced by the International Pacific Research Center (IPRC) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa in collaboration with the Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), Santa Rosa, California. More details can be found in the users guide.
