Validation Results

Summary: CCI v5_2 2001 incl filters ISMN no filter anomalies - ALL

  • Started validation on Sept. 22, 2020, 3:35 p.m. UTC, finished on Sept. 22, 2020, 3:48 p.m. UTC.
  • Compared 2 datasets:
    • Dataset 1: ESA CCI SM combined (v05.2, sm) [Filters: Not freezing and no snow-cover (flag != 1); No dense vegetation (flag != 2); Variable in valid geophysical range; Data with no inconsistencies detected (flag = 0); ]
    • Reference: ISMN (20191211 global, soil_moisture) [Filters: none ]
  • Validated globally.
  • Validation period / temporal filter: Jan. 1, 2001, midnight UTC to Sept. 22, 2020, 11:59 p.m. UTC.
  • Validation metrics calculated from anomalies against 35 day moving average.
  • Triple collocation analysis was deactivated.
  • Scaling reference: ISMN (20191211 global, soil_moisture) [Filters: none ]
  • Scaling method: Mean/standard deviation.
  • Processing took 12 minutes (wall time).
  • 0% (0 of 2869) of the processed locations (grid points) produced errors during calculation.
  • This result was published on zenodo with DOI 10.5281/zenodo.4288915.
