The new version of the ESA CCI SM Climate Data Record v08.1 is now available. The data set covers up to December 31st, 2022 and includes the new features:

  • The uncertainty estimates obtained through Triple Collocation Analysis and the consequent merging weights are now generated on a seasonal basis. The product uncertainty is now more representative of seasonal errors in soil moisture retrieval.
  • The barren ground flagging strategy has been changed to a majority decision, where at least 50% + 1 of the observing sensors are needed to raise the flag. The flag is kept optional, i.e., the soil moisture data is not masked.
  • Temporal break correction, which was provided as a separate experimental product in previous versions, is now included in COMBINED.
