Soil moisture is a crucial variable for a large variety of applications with different requirements on the spatial and temporal resolution of the observations. Coarse-scale instruments can provide data operationally with a nearly-daily global coverage at a spatial resolution of several hundreds of square kilometers, whereas SAR instruments provide a spatial(More)
Soil moisture is of high importance in permafrost regions. Within the DUE Permafrost project, adjustments to the 1 km Surface Soil Moisture (SSM) product, derived from ENVISAT ASAR Global Monitoring mode data, have been made to account for some of the conditions encountered at high latitudes. Soil moisture retrieval from SAR requires taking into account the(More)
