      Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) are still an important source of contamination in SMOS data. The application of nodal sampling (NS) to brightness temperature images helps to mitigate the degradation that RFIs produce ...
    • Impact of amplitude calibration errors on SMOS global images 

      Durán Martínez, Israel; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Torres Torres, Francisco; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Oliva, Roger; Martín Neira, Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
      Conference report

      Some of the artifacts observed in SMOS brightness temperature images are originated in an inconsistency between correlation and antenna temperature calibration errors, which produces a multiplicative bias that scales with ...
    • Impact of antenna tuning on SMOS correlation loss 

      Torres Torres, Francisco; Durán Martínez, Israel; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Closa, Josep; Oliva, Roger; Martín-Neira, Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)

      The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission by the European Space Agency (ESA) was launched in 2009 [1]. Since then, it has produced a continuous stream of valuable geophysical data over land, ice and ocean [2] ...
    • SMOS instrument performance and calibration after 6 years in orbit 

      Martín Neira, Manuel; Oliva, Roger; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Torres Torres, Francisco; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Durán Martínez, Israel; Kainulainen, Juha; Closa, Josep; Zurita Campos, Alberto Manuel; Cabot, François; Khazaal, Ali; Anterrieu, E.; Barbosa, José; Tenerelli, Joseph (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
      Conference report
