Abstract This product is the daily product of soil moisture, and contains filtered data. The best estimation of soil moisture is selected for each node when several multi-orbit retrievals are available for a given day. A detection of particular events is also performed in order to flag the data. Ascending and descending orbits are processed separately.
The aggregated products are generated from this fundamental product.
