      Capability for sea surface salinity observation was an important gap in ocean remote sensing in the last few decades of the 20th century. New technological developments during the 1990s at the European Space Agency led to ...
    • Sea surface emissivity observations at L-band: first results of the Wind and Salinity Experiment WISE 2000 

      Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Font Ferré, Jordi; Etcheto, J; Caselles Costa, Vicent; Weill, A; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Torres Torres, Francisco; Villarino Villarino, Ramón; Enrique, L; Julia, A; Gabarro, C; Boutin, J; Rubio, E; Reising, S; Wursteisen, P.; Berger, M.; Martín Neira, Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2002-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Sea surface salinity can be measured by passive microwave remote sensing at L-band. In May 1999, the European Space Agency (ESA) selected the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) Earth Explorer Opportunity Mission to ...

      A study of the latitudinal trend of the retrieved salinity performances along a Southwards transect has been performed, analyzing the trade-off between geophysical effects in cold seawater and the concomitant temporal ...
    • The WISE 2000 campaign: sea surface salinity and wind retrievals from L-band radiometry 

      Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Font Ferré, Jordi; Etcheto, Jacqueline; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Bará Temes, Francisco Javier; Torres Torres, Francisco; Wursteisen, Patrick; Martín Neira, Manuel (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2000)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Sea surface salinity (SSS) has been recognized as a key parameter in climatological studies. SSS can be measured by passive microwave remote sensing at L band, where the sensitivity of the brightness temperatures shows a ...
