The products are:
The ASCAT Surface Soil Moisture products provide an estimate of the water saturation of the 5 cm topsoil layer, in relative units between 0 and 100 [%]. The algorithm used to derive this parameter is based on a linear relationship of soil moisture and scatterometer backscatter, and uses change detection techniques to eliminate the contributions of vegetation, land cover and surface topography, considered invariant from year to year. Seasonal vegetation effects are modelled by exploiting the multiple viewing capabilities of ASCAT.
The Metop-C ASCAT Soil Moisture products currently have Demonstration status.
The products will be distributed on EUMETCast, as follows:
Multicast address: 220.127.116.11
Multicast address: 18.104.22.168
Multicast address: 22.214.171.124
Users wishing to receive these products should register for Metop-C ASCAT Soil Moisture products via our Earth Observation Portal (EOP).
