SMOS & Aquarius Science Workshop

15-17 April 2013, IFREMER, Brest, France

The main SMOS & AQUARIUS Science Workshop's objectives were:
  • Provide the SMOS and Aquarius science communities with an overview on the present quality of the provided data, and 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 group.

In the frame of this workshop two dedicated working groups have been established, namely the Satellite & In Situ Salinity (SISS) Working Group (WG) and Understanding Stratification and Sub-Footprint Processes Working group on salinity inter-comparison/cross-calibration.
