A long term global daily soil moisture dataset derived from AMSR-E and AMSR2 (2002-2021)
The soil moisture data is stored in netcdf format, and the file name is“ yyyyddd.nc ”, where yyyy stands for year and ddd stands for Julian date. For example, 2003001.nc represents this document describe the global soil moisture distribution on the first day of 2003.
How to read data:
The data is EASE-grid equal-area projection data (with varying latitude and longitude intervals)， rather than usual equal-latitude-longitude data. (for more information about EASE-grid projection, please see https://nsidc.org/data/ease)
The NC file of data stores three variables: latitude matrix, longitude matrix and soil moisture matrix, which are latitude (406*1), longitude（964*1） and soil_moisture (406*964) respectively. Projection information is not stored.
A. NC file can be directly read using software such as Matlab. For more information about netcdf, please see http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf.
B. If you want to convert NC file to TIF format, you need a .tif template data with EASE-grid 36km. We provide this data named EASEGrid2_36km.tif, please see the data folder. Here is a tutorial transferring EASE_grid file to TIF, written by a student in our group. https://blog.csdn.net/weixin_38953602/article/details/101158084
