Ionospheric effects for L-band 2-D interferometric radiometry


Ionospheric effects are a potential error source for the estimation of surface quantities such as sea surface salinity, using L-band radiometry. This study is carried out in the context of the SMOS future space mission, which uses an interferometric radiometer. We first describe the way the Faraday rotation angle due to electron content along the observing… (More)
