The SMOS Wind Data Service provides, in near real time (NRT), surface wind speed over the ocean derived from the brightness temperature measurements of SMOS.
Since the saltiness of ocean surface waters is a key variable in the climate system, understanding how this changes is important.
As ESA's SMOS satellite celebrates 10 years in orbit, yet another result has been added to its list of successes. This remarkable satellite mission has shown that it can be used to measure how the temperature of the Antarctic ice sheet changes with depth – and it's much warmer deep down.
Measurements from SMOS mission are being integrated into ECMWF's forecasting system, allowing for accurate description of water content in soil.
