International MODIS/AIRS Processing Package

 AMSR-E Level 2 Soil Moisture Software Package

   This package consists of software needed to process IMAPP direct broadcast binary calibration and geolocation AMSR-E data into an AMSR-E Soil Moisture product in HDF-EOS point (vdata) format.

This software is a modified version of the standard Soil Moisture software used to produce the official products distributed by the NSIDC DAAC. Very good documentation can be found at the NSIDC AE_Land Product website including references describing the algorithm, the algorithm developers, and the data format. This release is consistent with DAAC Version B03, and is supported on Intel Linux platforms.
