If you would like to take a look at the actual SMAP satellite data. It is now available HERE!
The SMAP data is pretty hard to access. You would want to access the World View Map:
  • Go to https://nsidc.org/data/smap/smap-data.html
  • Find SMAP L3 Radiometer Global Daily 36 km EASE-Grid Soil Moisture and click on link
  • Click on link, in the “Get Data” section that says “Package Options”
  • Click on World View link
  • Once in World View, click on “+” to add layers
  • Type SMAP in search box
  • Scroll down to find “Soil Moisture (L3, Passive) SMAP / Radiometer”
  • You can then use the bottom data bar to access specific calendar days.
  • Once you find a day of interest, you can click the icon to the right of the”+” to download the data. The data will be in a binary format and might require specific software.
  • We are working to get a clickable map on the GLOBE web site soon.
