SMOS: First in flight results

Abstract : The SMOS mission aims at allowing a frequent and global monitoring of two geophysical parameters: Soil Mois- ture and sea surface Salinity. These two quantities are key variables for climate studies, weather forecast and water resources management. To achieve this goal, a two dimensional interferometer operating at L band was developed and eventually launched on November 2 2009. The SMOS mission aims at providing a global frequent coverage of the globe with a spatial resolution of 43 km on average (27 km max).
