EDO Soil Moisture Index Anomaly (SMA) (version 2.1.3)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

Soil Moisture Anomaly (SMA) at 5-km spatial resolution, computed as standardized deviation from a baseline period 1995-2020. The dataset is derived from 6-hourly LISFLOOD modelled soil moisture in the top two soil layers, as produced for EFAS on a Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.
