Optimization of L-Band Sea Surface Emissivity Models Deduced From SMOS Data


The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite, launched in November 2009, carries the first interferometric radiometer at L-band (1.4 GHz) in orbit. Over the open ocean and for moderate wind speeds (WSs), the SMOS brightness temperatures (TB) are at first order consistent with simulated TB of theoretical prelaunch models implemented in the European… (More)
