This satellite mission will use new algorithms to try to forecast weather and estimate climate change from satellite measurements of the Earth's surface. ABSTRACT | It is now well understood that data on soil moisture and sea surface salinity (SSS) are required to improve meteorological and climate predictions. These two quantities are not yet available(More)
1. Abstract • SMOS Mission • Soil moisture and ocean surface salinity are of significant importance to improve meteorological and climate prediction • The SMOS mission monitor these quantities, by measuring the brightness temperature by means of L-band aperture synthesis interferometry • Despite the L-band being reserved for Earth and space exploration,(More)
