EDO Soil Moisture Index (SMI) (version 2.1.1)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

Average root zone Soil Moisture Index (SMI) at 5-km spatial resolution. 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.
