  "abstract": "<p><a href=\"https://waterai.earth/smaphb/\">SMAP-HydroBlocks (SMAP-HB)</a>&nbsp;is a hyper-resolution satellite-based surface soil moisture product that combines NASA&#39;s Soil Moisture Active-Passive (SMAP) L3 Enhance product, hyper-resolution land surface modeling, radiative transfer modeling, machine learning, and in-situ observations. The dataset was developed over the continental United States at 30-m 6-hourly resolution (2015&ndash;2019), and it reports the top 5-cm surface soil moisture in volumetric units (m3/m3).</p>\n\n<p>This repository contains the following two versions of the SMAP-HydroBlocks dataset:</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li><strong>SMAP-HB_hru_6h.zip</strong>: SMAP-HydroBlocks data in the Hydrological Response Unit (HRU) space. Storing the data in the HRU space enables the entire 30-m 6-h dataset to be compressed to 33.8 GB. A python script and instructions to post-process and remap the data from the HRU-space into geographic coordinates (latitude, longitude) is provided at <a href=\"https://github.com/NoemiVergopolan/SMAP-HydroBlocks_postprocessing\">GitHub</a>. After post-processed, files are stored in netCDF4 format with a Plate Carr&eacute;e projection.</li>\n\t<li><strong>SMAP-HB_1km_6h.zip</strong>: SMAP-HydroBlocks data at 1-km 6-h resolution. This aggregated version is already post-processed, and thus it is already in geographic coordinates (latitude, longitude), stored in netCDF4 format, with a Plate Carr&eacute;e projection, and comprising 31.5 GB of data.&nbsp;</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>Different subsets of the original dataset can be made available on request from Noemi Vergopolan (noemi.v.rocha@gmail.com). Data visualization, updates, and more information is available at <a href=\"http://waterai.earth/smaphb/\">https://waterai.earth/smaphb/</a>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Please cite the following paper when using the dataset in any publication:</p>\n\n<p>Vergopolan, N., Chaney, N.
