The main objectives of this workshop are to:

  • Provide the SMOS and Aquarius science communities with
    o an overview on the present quality of the provided data, and
    o an outlook on future algorithm developments.
  • Explore common L-band sensor and algorithm issues for sea surface salinity and soil moisture retrievals derived by SMOS and Aquarius data. 
  • Present broader science achievements of both missions, including modelling results.
  • Explore synergistic use of and validation approaches for SMOS, Aquarius and other sensors’ data over land and ocean. 
  • Provide a forum for discussion on specific topics related to improving sea surface salinity and soil moisture retrievals through dedicated working groups. Please see link for details
