New SMOS Near Real Time Sea Surface Wind Speed new baseline is released

04 Aug 2021

A new version of the SMOS Sea Surface Wind Speed processor - version 300 - was deployed at IFREMER and ESA operational ground segments on 4 August 2021.

This new version includes important algorithm upgrades which are described in the Algorithm Theoretical Baseline Document

The main improvements in the quality of the SMOS Sea Surface Wind Speed products are summarised in the read-me-first note

This new dataset is using as input the new level 1 Near Real time product and supersedes the previous dataset generated by the algorithm baseline version 110. Users are encouraged to use this and to read the read-me-first notes carefully to ensure optimum exploitation of the new SMOS dataset.
