In June 2012 the first version of the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Soil Moisture data set has been released. This ESA CCI Soil Moisture product is the first data set of this kind covering a period of more than 30 years. It is generated by combination of surface soil moisture retrievals from active and passive microwave space borne instruments. The algorithm for combining level 2 data sets from multiple sensors is based on various selected methods of resampling, scaling, ranking, and blending. The advantages of the harmonized and merged product are not only the increased spatial and temporal data availability but also the integration of active and passive remotely sensed surface soil moisture data together into one consistent long term climate data record. This paper lists important improvements of the product made since its first release and discusses relevant enhancements that will be included in future releases.
