Resource Basic Information
  Resource Id: urn:geoss:csr:resource:urn:uuid:5cd556bc-a6f7-454c-81a5-fc2c25498649
  Name: AMSR-E/Aqua Daily L3 Surface Soil Moisture
  Abbreviation: AE_Land3
  Description: The Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) instrument on the NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua satellite provides global passive microwave measurements of terrestrial, oceanic, and atmospheric variables for the investigation of water and energy cycles. Soil moisture and other land surface variables are key variables in understanding land surface hydrology and in modeling ecosystems, weather, and climate. This gridded Level-3 land surface product (AE_Land3) includes daily measurements of surface soil moisture and vegetation/roughness water content interpretive information, as well as brightness temperatures and quality control variables.
