SMAP Enhanced L3 Radiometer Global Daily 9 km EASE-Grid Soil Moisture, Version 2
This data set contains the surface soil moisture (0-5 cm) derived from SMAP (Soil Moisture Active Passive) satellite radiometer brightness temperatures on a global 9km EASE-Grid 2.0. The brightness temperatures are also included. Data are included for the period of the WE-CAN/BB-FLUX field projects. The data are in daily gzipped tar files that contain the data in HDF5 format.
NSIDC has issued updated versions of this dataset. Version 5 was published in November 2021: https://doi.org/10.5067/4DQ54OUIJ9DL
