Abstract

These ancillary datasets were used in the production of the "Active", "Passive" and "Combined" soil moisture data products, created as part of the European Space Agency's (ESA) Soil Moisture Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The set of ancillary datasets include datasets of Average Vegetation Optical Depth data from AMSR-E, Soil Porosity, Topographic Complexity and Wetland fraction, as well as a Land Mask. This version of the ancillary datasets were used in the production of the v02.2 Soil Moisture CCI data.

For further information on these and the references associated with them please see the Product Specification Document (PSD), a link to which is provided in the documentation section. The "Active" "Passive" and "Combined" soil moisture products which they were used in the development of are fusions of scatterometer and radiometer soil moisture products, derived from the AMI-WS, ASCAT, SMMR, SSM/I, TMI, AMSR-E, WindSat, and AMSR2 satellite instruments. To access these products or for further details on them please see their dataset records. Additional reference documents and information relating to them can also be found on the CCI Soil Moisture project website or within the Product Specification Document.
