dc.description.abstract Once launched in late 2014/early 2015, the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission will provide high resolution global mapping of soil moisture and its freeze/thaw state every 2-3 days. These measurements are valuable to improved understanding of the Earth’s water, energy, and carbon cycles, and to applications of societal benefit. In order for soil moisture and freeze/thaw to be retrieved accurately from SMAP microwave data, a variety of global static and dynamic ancillary data are required. The choice of which ancillary datasets to use for SMAP products will be based on a number of factors including availability and ease of use, their inherent error and resulting impact on SMAP retrieval accuracies, and compatibility with similar choices made by ESA’s SMOS mission. en_US
