Smerge-Noah-CCI root zone soil moisture 0-40 cm L4 daily 0.125 x 0.125 degree V1.0 (SMERGE_RZSM0_40CM) at GES DISC
Entry ID: SMERGE_RZSM0_40CM_1.0


Summary
Abstract: Smerge-Noah-CCI root zone soil moisture 0-40 cm L4 daily 0.125 x 0.125 degree V1.0 is a multi-decadal root-zone soil moisture product. Smerge is developed by merging the North American Land Data Assimilation System (NLDAS) land surface model output with surface satellite retrievals from the European Space Agency Climate Change Initiative. The data have a 0.125 degree resolution at a daily time-step, covering the entire continental United States and spanning nearly four decades (1979 to 2015).

This data product contains root-zone soil moisture of 0 - 40 cm layer and a soil moisture data estimation flag.
