Oceanography greatly benefits from remote sensing satellites for global monitoring and forecast of the sea surface. The CFOSAT (China France Oceanography SATellite) mission, whose launch is planned for 2013, should embark two radar payloads to monitor wind and waves over the ocean. One of this two radar instruments is called SWIM (Surface Waves(More)
Observational results derived from the airborne C-band scatterometer RESSAC looking at small incidence angles (521 ") were acquired in the vicinity of the Gulf Stream during the Surface Wave Dynamics Experiment in February and March 1991. Although the instrument was primarily designed to study the directional spectra of long waves, it is also possible to(More)
A renewal of interest for the radiometric L-band Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) remote sensing appeared in the 1990s and led to the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite launched in November 2009 and to the Aquarius mission (launched in June 2011). However, due to low signal to noise ratio, retrieving SSS from L-band radiometry is very challenging.(More)
