SMOS Winds Product data gap recovery

13 Feb 2024

From 28 January 2024 to 9 February 2024, several Level 1 products used as an input to the SMOS winds processor were flagged with a warning, due to the antenna temperature exceeding 29° C for some of the units located in arm-A.

Consequently, these data were ignored by the Level 2 SMOS Wind processor generating some gaps in the data dissemination. This warning condition does not impact the quality of the wind data, therefore a reprocessing with tailored configuration will be done to recover the operational data gaps and the products will be available soon on the SMOS dissemination service.

The product version processed with this tailored processor configuration will contain "306" instead of "305".
