PRODUCTS

DRYMON distinguishes products from services. The products are the input data for the DRYMON services. Nevertheless, the data itself can be of value within different fields, for example meteorology and hydrology. In these cases, it is likely that the data will serve as input for models that are operated by the customers. The same data can also provide insight into the physical state of local condition or local crop performance, which can be of value for the food industry, insurance agencies and risk management.

Below, a list of DRYMON current near-real-time products follows. We also have archived data from 1991 onwards. All products can be delivered in common formats and can be supplied through a FTP service.

 

 

Soil water index and error

On daily basis the soil moisture over a 1 m deep profile is derived from the above described 12.5 km surface soil moisture data of at least the last 30 days. The soil water index is on a 12.5 km global grid. This data can be used as root zone soil moisture.

 

Soil water index anomaly

The deviance of the current soil water index from the 15 year average (for each day of the year). The soil water index anomaly is on a 12.5 km global grid. This data can be used for early warnings.

 

Surface soil moisture and error estimate

As the underneath described surface soil moisture data but interpolated to a 12.5 km fixed grid. However, the data is filtered for several conditions where under the soil moisture is unreliable, such as snow and permafrost conditions. These data enables the analyses of time series.

 

Surface soil moisture anomaly

The anomaly of the above described surface soil moisture on a 12.5 km grid. The anomaly is the difference between the actual observed and the 15 year average of that specific day of the year. These data enables the analyses of time series.

 

Surface soil moisture and error estimate

14 times a day the surface soil moisture of the top layer of (~5 cm) is acquired in an satellite orbit wise manner on a resolution of 25 km.

 

Surface soil moisture anomaly

14 times a day the surface soil moisture anomaly of the top layer of (~5 cm) is acquired in an satellite orbit wise manner on a resolution of 25 km. The anomaly is the difference between the actual observed and the 15 year average of that specific day of the year.

 

DRYMON envisions to have the following products operational:

High resolution soil moisture

Daily, globaly soil moisture data on high resolution (< 1 km). A novel connection of different satellite data sources enables such unprecedented combination of high temporal with high spatial resolution.
