Primary changes include:

  • Level-1 Brightness Temperatures: Added procedure to correct brightness temperatures for water/land contamination near coastlines
  • Level-2 and -3 Soil Moisture: Improved depth correction for effective soil temperature
  • Level-3 Freeze/Thaw: Implemented supplementary single-channel V-pol (SCV) algorithm for areas of lower latitudes, extending the spatial coverage to global
