AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified L2B Half-Orbit 25 km EASE-Grid Surface Soil Moisture V001

Version 001
  • Abstract
    The AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified Level-2B land product includes surface soil moisture estimates derived using the Normalized Polarization Difference algorithm (NPD) and the Single Channel Algorithm (SCA) along with ancillary information gridded to the 25 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid).
  • Version Description
    The first version of the AMSR-E/AMSR2 Unified dataset includes an updated Normalized Polarization Difference (NPD) algorithm and the first standard Single Channel Algorithm (SCA) algorithm.
