Abstract
SMAP-HydroBlocks (SMAP-HB) is a hyper-resolution satellite-based surface soil moisture product that combines NASA's Soil Moisture Active-Passive (SMAP) L3 Enhance product, hyper-resolution land surface modeling, radiative transfer modeling, machine learning, and in-situ observations. The dataset was developed over the continental United States at 30-m 6-hourly resolution (2015–2019), and it reports the top 5-cm surface soil moisture in volumetric units (m3/m3). This repository contains the following two versions of the SMAP-HydroBlocks dataset: SMAP-HB_hru_6h.zip: SMAP-HydroBlocks data in the Hydrological Response Unit (HRU) space. Storing the data in...
