NOAA NESDIS Global Soil Moisture Data Products Portal:

Data products of land surface and deeper layer soil moisture are critical inputs for numerical models for weather, seasonal and inter-annual climate, hydrological, and agricultural predictions. They are also needed for military operations, water resources managements and many other societal applications. Based on the satellite remote sensing and land surface modeling expertise at the Center for Satellite Application and Research of NOAA NESDIS, the following satellite remote sensing and modeling soil moisture data products are generated or collected. Based on the soil moisture observations, global flood and drought maps are also generated. More details of these data products are described in the Documentation page. Click the left panel for browsing or downloading these data products.

Daily soil moisture maps, 3-day soil moisture composites, drought maps, and flood maps.
