The ORNL DAAC's Soil Moisture Visualizer (SMV) brings together multiple sources of soil moisture data available for North America, including: AirMOSS, SMAP, SoilSCAPE, and COSMOS, as well as precipitation and temperature data from other sources, into a single platform for visualization and download. The SMV is a web application for visualization and spatial subsetting of surface and root-zone soil moisture data from a variety of native data formats.

The following data are currently available through the Soil Moisture Visualizer:
