Short summary
We developed a global land parameter data record (LPDR; 2002–2015) using satellite microwave observations. The LPDR algorithms exploit multifrequency microwave observations to derive a set of environmental variables, including surface fractional water, atmosphere precipitable water vapor, daily surface air temperatures, vegetation optical depth, and volumetric soil moisture. The resulting LPDR shows favorable accuracy and provides for the consistent monitoring of global environmental changes.
