Soil moisture anomalies for the year 2012 from the ESA’s CCI satellite-based soil moisture product

The latest Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) State of the Climate Report 2012, published in August 2013, includes again contributions from scientists active in the CCI Soil Moisture project.

The report is available for download from the BAMS publication site.

From page 24 it is shown how the ECV Soil Moisture dataset was used to calculate surface soil moisture anomalies for the year 2012 by subtracting the 1991–2012 climatology from the corresponding monthly averages. The resulting maps reflect the major hydroclimatic variations for 2012.
