[1] The Microwave Imaging Radiometer using Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS) on board the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission for the first time measures globally Earth’s radiation at a frequency of 1.4 GHz (L-band). It had been hypothesized that L-band radiometry can be used to measure the sea ice thickness due to the(More)
We investigate the potential of a synergetic combination of data from ESA’s SMOS and CryoSat-2 mission for sea ice thickness retrieval. SMOS and CryoSat-2 provide complementary information because of their different spatiotemporal sampling and resolution, and because of the complementary uncertainty due to the fundamental difference of the radiometric and(More)
