Description: The ESA CCI Soil Moisture product provides three daily products based on scatterometer data only (ACTIVE), radiometer data only (PASSIVE) and both (COMBINED). Additionally, a COMBINED break-adjusted dataset is available with the latest version release (v06.1; Preimesberger et al. 2021).
Coverage: Global; 1978 - 2020
Resolution: 0.25 degree; daily
Current version: v06.1
Description: Based on the processing algorithm of the ESA CCI SM, the C3S data products (PASSIVE, ACTIVE, COMBINED) are extended in near real time (NRT) every 10 days.
Coverage: Global; 1978 - NRT
Resolution: 0.25 degree; daily, dekadal (10-daily), monthly
Current version: v202012

Description: A harmonized and quality controlled global in-situ soil moisture database, operational since 2010 constantly expanded temporally as well as with additional networks.
Data: Soil moisture + 7 additional variables from upper soil layer until two meter depths (all dependent on the individual stations); stored in separate files (CEOP formatted).
Metadata: 3 additional metadata information stored for each station ( Harmonized World Soil Data, Köppen-Geiger Climate Class, CCI Landcover); additional soil information from provider stored in database (dependent on individual networks)
Coverage: Global; 1952 – near real time
Resolution: point coordinate for each station
Description: Vegetation Optical Depth describes the attenuation of radiation by plants. VOD is a function of frequency as well as vegetation water content, and by extension biomass. VOD has many possible applications in studies of the biosphere, such as biomass monitoring, drought monitoring, phenology analyzes or fire risk management.
Data: via Zenodo.org
Coverage: Global; 2002-2018 (C-band), 1997-2018 (X-band), 1987-2017 (Ku-band)
Resolution: 0.25 degree; daily.
Current version: v1.0

Description: Gross Primary Productivity (GPP) describes the amount of carbohydrates that is produced by vegetation's synthesis of CO2 and is therefore crucial in the assessment of the global carbon cycle. VODCA2GPP represents the first microwave remote sensing derived GPP dataset.
Coverage: Global, 1988-2020
Resolution: 0.25 degree, 8-daily
Current version: 1.0
