Abstract

SMAP project released a new enhanced high-resolution (3km) soil moisture active-passive product. This product is obtained by combining the SMAP radiometer data and the Sentinel-1A and -1B Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data. The approach used for this product draws heavily from the heritage SMAP active-passive algorithm. Modifications in the SMAP active-passive algorithm are done to accommodate the Copernicus Program’s Sentinel-1A and -1B multi-angular C-band SAR data. Assessment of the SMAP and Sentinel active-passive algorithm has been conducted and results show feasibility of estimating surface soil moisture at high-resolution in regions with low vegetation density (~< 3 kg m-2). The beta version of this product is released to public on Nov 1st, 2017. This high resolution (3 km) soil moisture product is useful for agriculture, flood mapping, watershed/rangeland management, and ecological/hydrological applications.
