  • Applications of L-band missions for environmental research 

    Chaparro Danon, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-10-15)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Human activity leads to environmental changes which threaten the vegetation. Global warm ing trends, deforestation and land cover, or modified Earth's surface albedo, are sorne examples of these environmental changes. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Earth remote sensing with SMOS, Aquarius and SMAP missions 

    Pablos Hernández, Miriam (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-10-03)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    The first three of a series of new generation satellites operating at L-band microwave frequencies have been launch in the last decade. L-band is particularly sensitive to the presence of water content in the scene under ...
