SMOS Comparison Tool

The SMOS Comparison Tool (SCoT) can be used to compare SMOS Level 1 products of the same type generated with the same schema version for the Data Blocks (DBL). It has been designed to be used by the SMOS Calibration Expert Centre (CEC), the Expert Support Laboratories (ESL) and the Calibration and Validation teams to facilitate the comparison of Level 1 products generated with different L1 processor configurations or algorithm baselines.

The tool requires a Linux Operative System, the installation of the Matlab Component Runtime (MCR) included in the delivery kit or a licensed version of Matlab (v7.5 or above) and the XML RW API to read the SMOS Level 1 products.

SCoT has a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to ease the management of the various SCoT functionalities. Selecting input files, output folder, selecting the plots, displaying the graphical results and even manipulating them is possible with this GUI.
