JPL SMAP Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) CAP V4.3 Dataset Release
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
he PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the availability of the PI-produced JPL V4.3 SMAP Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) and extreme winds data, which includes Level-2B (L2B) and Level 3 (L3) standard datasets based on the JPL Combined Active-Passive (CAP) algorithm applied to data from the NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory. An associated near real-time L2B dataset is also available as a rolling store with a latency of about 4.3 hours. For science applications, use of the standard products is strongly advised. We also recommend the use of the V4.3 forward stream data over the prior version, which is deprecated and will be retired within the next 6 months.
The JPL SMAP-SSS CAP V4.3 datasets are described, discoverable, and accessible via the PO.DAAC data portal, as are the associated technical documentation. General information regarding the SMAP mission is available from the mission website and also via PO.DAAC’s SMAP and salinity webpages.
