Data set update: Daily Global Land Parameters Derived from AMSR-E and AMSR2

The Daily Global Land Parameters Derived from AMSR-E and AMSR2, Version 2 data set, available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC), has been updated to include data through 31 December 2018. This data set contains satellite-retrieved geophysical parameter files generated from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer – Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite and the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer 2 (AMSR2) sensor aboard the JAXA GCOM-W1 satellite. The geophysical parameters include daily air surface temperature, fractional open water cover estimates, vegetation optical depth, surface volumetric soil moisture, and atmosphere total column precipitable water vapor. The global retrievals were derived over land for non-precipitating, non-snow, and non-ice covered conditions.
