Short summary
Acquired daily soil moisture products are always incomplete globally (just about 30 %–80 % coverage ratio) due to the satellite orbit coverage and the limitations of soil moisture retrieval algorithms. To solve this inevitable problem, we generate long-term seamless global daily (SGD) AMSR2 soil moisture productions from 2013 to 2019. These productions are significant for full-coverage global daily hydrologic monitoring, rather than averaging as the monthly–quarter–yearly results.
