SMAP Mission Status and PlanThe prime mission phase of National Aeronautics Space Administration's (NASA's) Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) project was successfully completed in June 2018. The extended phase has been approved by NASA for operation through 2021 (with option to 2023). SMAP data have been well calibrated and have enabled diverse scientific investigations in water, energy and carbon cycle research, terrestrial ecology and ocean science. This paper will provide the highlights of algorithm updates to radiometric calibration and soil moisture retrieval algorithms. A summary of extended phase activities, in particular the SMAPVEX19 campaign, for product enhancements will be provided.
