    The ESA's Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS, 2009-2017) is the first mission using L-band radiometry to monitor the Earth's global surface soil moisture (SM). After more than 7 years in orbit, many studies have ...
  • Comparación entre los productos de humedad del suelo SMOS y ECV 

    Portal González, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-09)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    The SMOS mission is providing the first ever global observations of surface soil moisture (SSM) at L-band. With almost five years of mapping this variable, it is now possible to start analyzing SSM spatial and temporal ...
  • Microwave and optical data fusion for global mapping of soil moisture at high resolution 

    Portal González, Gerard; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Piles Guillem, Maria; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Chaparro Danon, David; Pablos Hernánez, Miriam; Rossato, Luciana; Aabouch, Khalid (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)

    After more than 8 years in orbit the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite is still in good health and several algorithms for improving its spatial resolution have been proposed and validated in a variety of ...
  • Sensitivity of TDS-1 GNSS-R reflectivity to soil moisture: global and regional differences and impact of different spatial scales 

    Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Vall-llossera, M.; Hyuk, Park; Portal González, Gerard; Rossato, Luciana (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The potential of Global Navigation Satellite Systems-Reflectometry (GNSS-R) techniques to estimate land surface parameters such as soil moisture (SM) is experimentally studied using 2014-2017 global data from the UK ...
  • Sensitivity to soil moisture of spaceborne GNSS-R observables
