This Level-2B land surface product (AE_Land) includes daily measurements of surface soil moisture, vegetation/roughness water content interpretive information, and quality control variables. Ancillary data include time, geolocation, and quality assessment.
Type: EGI - No ProcessingDescription: Using this service, data from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) can be accessed directly from our HTTPS file system, or through our Application Programming Interface (API). This API offers you the ability to programmatically order and bulk-download data using temporal and spatial filters without the need to script against NSIDC's data directory structure. This may be valuable if you are interested in incorporating data access commands into your analysis or visualization code.

STRINGDescription: Satellite Direction
INTDescription: The index number for the last polygon associated with the nominal pass number in the granule
INTDescription: The nominal pass index number for the pass that best describes the spatial location of the granule, where the pass is either the ascending or descending portion of an orbit
FLOATDescription: Orbital period in decimal minutes
FLOATDescription: Angle between the orbit plane and the Earth’s equatorial plane
INTDescription: Percentage of data points in the half-orbit data file that are done = (number of land points/total number of points)*100 (computed using an ocean mask).
INTDescription: Percentage of data points over land where retrievals are done = (number of retrieval points/total number of land points)*100 (computed using a classification mask for mountains, forest, etc.).
INTDescription: Percentage of land data points where retrievals are done, whose retrievals are within bounds = (number of within-bounds retrieval points/number of retrieval points)*100.
INTDescription: The index number for the first polygon associated with the nominal pass number in the granule.
STRINGDescription: Digital object identifier that uniquely identifies this data product
STRINGDescription: URL of the digital object identifier resolving authority
