Daily Global Land Parameters Derived from AMSR-E and AMSR2, Version 2

  • Abstract
    Notice to Data Users: The documentation for this data set was provided solely by the Principal Investigator(s) and was not further developed, thoroughly reviewed, or edited by NSIDC. Thus, support for this data set may be limited. This data set contains satellite-retrieved geophysical parameter files generated from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) instrument on the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Aqua satellite and the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) sensor on the JAXA GCOM-W1 satellite. The geophysical parameters include daily air surface temperature, fractional open water cover estimates, vegetation optical depth, surface volumetric soil moisture, and atmosphere total column precipitable water vapor. The global retrievals were derived over land for non-precipitating, non-snow, and non-ice covered conditions.
