SMAP L2 Radiometer Half-Orbit 36 km EASE-Grid Soil Moisture V004

Version 004 eng
  • Abstract
    Passive soil moisture estimates onto a 36-km global Earth-fixed grid, based on radiometer measurements acquired when the SMAP spacecraft is travelling from North to South at approximately 6:00 AM local time.
  • Purpose
    The SMAP L2_SM_P algorithm provides soil moistures based on radiometer data on a 36-km grid. The radiometer data during descending half-orbits are used by the active/passive algorithm in L2_SM_AP to disaggregate the 36 km radiometer measurements to create the 9 km active-passive products.
