      Surface Soil Moisture (SSM) affects the soil surface energy balance and thus affects the Land Surface Temperature (LST), and viceversa. Currently, LST and SSM are remotely sensed using TIR sensors and L-band radiometers, ...
    • Ice thickness effects on Aquarius brightness temperatures over Antarctica 

      Pablos Hernández, Miriam; Piles Guillem, Maria; Gonzalez Gambau, Verónica; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena (2015-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The Dome-C region, in the East Antarctic Plateau, is regarded as an ideal natural laboratory for calibration/validation of space-borne microwave radiometers. At L-band, the thermal stability of this region has been confirmed ...
    • Influence of ice thickness on SMOS and Aquarius brightness temperature over Antarctica 

      Pablos Hernández, Miriam; Piles Guillem, Maria; Gonzalez Gambau, Verónica; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The Dome-C region, in the East Antarctic Plateau, has been used for calibration/validation of satellite microwave radiometers since the 1970's. However, its use as an independent external target has been recently questioned ...
    • SMOS and aquarius radiometers: inter-comparison over selected targets 

      Pablos Hernández, Miriam; Piles Guillem, Maria; González Gambau, Veronica; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Martinez, Justino (2014-09-01)
      Article
