Soil moisture grids
1 km and 12.5 km soil moisture grids are available for April 2015 to December 2017. The bands are 0–10 (exceptionally low), 10–25 (notably low), 25–40 (below normal), 40–55 (normal), 55–70 (above normal), 70–85 (notably high), 85–100 (exceptionally high)).
The point extraction (timeseries graphs) for soil moisture retrieves a value that is taken from the 12.5 km grid.
