Description

This dataset provides estimates of seasonal subsidence, active layer thickness (ALT), the vertical soil moisture profile, and uncertainties at a 30 m resolution for 51 sites across the ABoVE domain, including 39 sites in Alaska and 12 sites in Northwest Canada. The ALT and soil moisture profile retrievals simultaneously use L- and P-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data acquired by the NASA/JPL Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) instruments during the 2017 Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) airborne campaign. The data are provided in NetCDF Version 4 format along with a python script for estimating soil volumetric water content from data.
