This animation depicts gridded, daily volumetric water content estimated for the 0-5 cm surface soil layer between March 2017 and August 2020. These soil moisture data constitute the first land product from CYGNSS, a NASA Earth Ventures mission and satellite constellation for ocean surface remote sensing using a technique called GNSS-Reflectometry, and represent a starting point to explore land surface research applications using this promising new technique. The dataset can be accesses from the PO.DAAC Portal at https://doi.org/10.5067/CYGNU-L3SM1 (DOI: 10.5067/CYGNU-L3SM1)
