      González Gambau, Veronica; Turiel, Antonio; Martinez, Justino; Olmedo, Edson; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) sources, Sun signal and even land-sea transitions may generate large sidelobes that corrupt SMOS brightness temperature products and therefore, the quality of the soil moisture and sea ...
    • Benefits of applying nodal sampling to SMOS data over semi-enclosed seas and strongly RFI-contaminated regions 

      González Gambau, Verónica; Olmedo, Estrella; Martinez, J.; Turiel, Antonio; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Oliva, Roger; Martín Neira, Manuel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
      Conference report

      Global Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) Level 3 (L3) soil moisture (SM) products are being routinely distributed by the Barcelona Expert Centre (BEC). The quality and accuracy of these SM products have been demonstrated ...
    • Latitudinal and seasonal SMOS amplitude calibration assessment 

      Gonzalez Gambau, Verónica; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Torres Torres, Francisco; Duffo Ubeda, Núria; Turiel, Antonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The consistency of MIRAS amplitude calibration along the mission is a key issue to ensure a stable and accurate long-term dataset of ESA's SMOS soil moisture and ocean salinity data. Recent studies have revealed latitudinal ...
    • Nodal sampling: a new image reconstruction algorithm for SMOS 

      Gonzalez Gambau, Verónica; Turiel, Antonio; Olmedo Casal, Estrella; Martinez, Justino; Corbella Sanahuja, Ignasi; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Soil moisture and ocean salinity (SMOS) brightness temperature (TB) images and calibrated visibilities are related by the so-called G -matrix. Due to the incomplete sampling at some spatial frequencies, sharp transitions ...
    • Preparing levels 3 and 4 for the SMOS mission 

      Gourrion, Jerôme; Mourre, Baptiste; Ballabrera, Joaquim; Aretxabaleta, Alfredo; Turiel, Antonio (SARTI (Technological Development Centre of Remote Acquisition and Data processing Systems), 2010-03-10)
