  1. SMOS First results after 18 months in Orbit:successes and issues Yann KERR, Philippe Waldteufel, François Cabot, Philippe Richaume, Ali Mahmoodi, Steven Delwart , J.-P. Wiigneron, Susanne Mecklenburg , Nicolas Reul, Jacqueline Boutin IGARSS 2011 Vancouver BC Canada

  2. Science Objectives for SMOS: The SMOS Mission Mission specifications Soil Moisture multi-angular dual pol 4 % vol 3 dayrevisit (Vegetation 7 day) betterthan 50 km Sea Surface Salinity multi acquisitions dual pol or 1st stokes betterthan 0.1 psu 10 day to monthly Gridscale (200 km) Launched November 2 2009 Comm Phase May 2010 Data since January 12 2010 Le Traon et al IGARSS '11 Vancouver

  36. Quality Results • RFI issues • Serious and not well anticipated issue • Agressive actions on unlawfull emitters P Richaume IGARSS '11 Vancouver

  37. With Dobson very dry for sandy dominant area With Dosbon very wet area Black area  SM < -0.005 means no product for these DGGs in OP mode 3 days ascending orbits from 2010/12/01 to 2010/12/04 with rain events IGARSS '11 Vancouver

  38. With Mironov less dry for sandy area With Mironov very wet area less difference Only small black dots remain  SM < -0.005 None, if considering SM < -0.01 means more DGGs in OP mode SML2PP V4.01 SymetrizedMironov 3 days ascending orbits from 2010/12/01 to 2010/12/04 with rain events IGARSS '11 Vancouver

  39. Summary • SMOS has been running for over one year and a half • Works fine with a few hickups • Good data and good retrievals in spite of first days of a new system • Some issues with • RFI • Calibration (for SSS) • Vegetation Opacity still far from perfect • Land sea issue with level 1 processing • 3rd and 4th stokes parameters strange • But over RFI free areas excellent results • Got to get rid of those RFI!!! • Many new fields open • New ventures with Aquarius and eventually SMAP • See also • Our Blog  http://www.cesbio.ups-tlse.fr/SMOS_blog/ YHK July 2011 IGARSS '11 Vancouver
