The average daily soil moisture across the globe
Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at the average daily soil moisture across the world.
The darker blue and purple areas reflect a high soil moisture, which would be found in places like the northeastern United States. The brown and orange areas reflect low soil moisture, such as a desert. The green areas are rainforests, while the white areas are frozen soil.
The clip was compiled using 40 years of research data from a range of satellite sensors.
