Phase 1 of the Soil Moisture CCI project was kicked off on 01-01-2012.
In its first phase the project carried out the following activities:
- Year 1: Engagement of the climate modelling community, definition of product specifications and algorithms selection
- Year 2: System prototyping and ECV production
- Year 3: Final production and user assessment
Phase 2 that was kicked off in January 2015 and aims at a graceful evolution of the system from Phase 1 prototype to a sustainable version in Phase 2 within 3 years. Finally, an operational framework for the production of the most complete and consistent possible multi-sensor global ECV soil moisture data records based on active and passive microwave sensors will be provided. Phase 2 is characterised by cyclic annual workflows as displayed below:
