Description

The SMOS Level 3 Freeze and Thaw (F/T) product provides daily information on the soil state in the Northern Hemisphere based on SMOS observations and associated ancillary data.

Daily products, in NetCDF format, are generated by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) and are available from 2010 onwards.

The processing algorithm makes use of gridded Level 3 brightness temperatures provided by CATDS.

The data is provided in the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE2-Grid), at 25 km x 25 km resolution.

For an optimal exploitation of this dataset, please refer to the Resources section below to access Product Specifications, read-me-first notes, etc.
