Please note that this session has been withdrawn from the EGU program.
If you are interested in NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) data and attending the European Geosciences Union (EGU) meeting in April, we would like to bring your attention to a short course that is focused on the utilization of SMAP data. The goal of this short course is to provide an overview of the SMAP satellite mission and its soil moisture and freeze/thaw data products including information on the instruments, retrieval algorithms, datasets, calibration and validation, and end user applications. A hands-on portion will familiarize participants with SMAP data products – data access, file contents, processing and usage.
