SMAP Captures Views of Global Soil Moisture
Data from the radiometer instrument on NASA's Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory have led to the creation of new maps of global soil moisture. The new images (each a composite of three days of SMAP radiometer data, collected in April) show the volumetric water content in the top 2 inches (5 centimeters) of soil. These uncalibrated soil moisture images will be evaluated during the calibration and validation phase of SMAP's science mission, which begins on 10 May.  >>
