SMAP L1B Radiometer Half-Orbit Time-Ordered Brightness Temperatures V003

Version 003 eng
  • Abstract
    Time ordered geolocated H-pol and V-pol brightness temperatures as well as 3rd and 4th Stokes parameters. Each product covers a half orbit with boundaries at the northernmost and southernmost points along the nadir path of the SMAP spacecraft trajectory.
  • Purpose
    The SMAP L1B_TB Science Processing Software generates data products with sufficient accuracy to retrieve soil moisture at 36 km resolution. Subsequent SMAP processes employ these data, along with radar data acquired simultaneously, to disaggregate the L1B_TB brightness temperatures into higher resolution samples, and thus generate better resolution soil moisture products.
