David Fairbairn (ECMWF) - Soil moisture and drought monitoring


David Fairbairn talks about soil moisture and drought monitoring and using H SAF datasets. 


H SAF soil moisture (SM) products are derived from ASCAT C-band backscatter measurements. In this presentation we compare the near-real-time products with long-term data records in order to demonstrate the exceptional severity and extent of recent droughts, including the 2022 summer drought over Europe.
