This latest release (v04.7) extends the ACTIVE, PASSIVE and COMBINED CCI Soil Moisture product datasets for additional 12 months, now providing global soil moisture data up to 31 December 2019.

Current product version is based on the algorithm v04.4, although differences in the input datasets occur. At v04.7, updated L2 products for both passive and active products are used. These changes result in only minor data flagging alterations and v04.7 is otherwise similar to v04.5. Detailed descriptions of the production process, ESA CCI SM algorithm and input datasets are available in the relevant documentation.

ESA CCI Soil Moisture Team
