Daily 0.05°×0.05° Land Surface Soil Moisture Dataset of Qilian Mountain Area (2018,SMHiRes, V1)

Daily 0.05°×0.05° Land Surface Soil Moisture Dataset of Qilian Mountain Area (2018,SMHiRes, V1)

This dataset contains daily 0.05°×0.05° land surface soil moisture products in Qilian Mountain Area in 2018. The dataset was produced by utilizing the multivariate statistical regression model to downscale the “AMSR-E and AMSR2 TB-based SMAP Time-Expanded Daily 0.25°×0.25° Land Surface Soil Moisture Dataset in Qilian Mountain Area (SMsmapTE, V1)”. The auxiliary datasets participating in the multivariate statistical regression include GLASS Albedo/LAI/FVC, 1km all-weather surface temperature data in western China by Ji Zhou and Lat/Lon information.
