The LPRM products were produced by Richard de Jeu and colleagues at Vrije University Amsterdam and NASA. The SMOS level 3 data were produced by Centre Aval de Traitement des Donnees SMOS (CATDS), operated for the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES, France) by IFREMER (Brest, France). The active data sets were produced by TU-Wien within the framework of EUMETSAT's Satellite Application Facility on Support of Operational Hydrology and Water Management. The MERRA-L data set was produced by NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and made available via Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC).
