Abstract This product is an intermediate product, that provides, in daily files, SSS corrected from land-sea contamination and latitudinal bias. Ascending and descending orbits are processed separately
Keywords Orthoimagery, SMOS, CATDS, CPDC, L3OS, Ocean Salinity, 2Q, Ocean Product
Lineage The base products, for all the CATDS-PDC (Centre Aval de Traitement des Données SMOS - Production & Dissemination Center) processing chains, are the SMOS L1B products from ESA (European Space Agency).
From these, brightness temperatures at various incidence angles are reconstructed. The Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) are retrieved from multi-angular brightness temperatures through a maximum likehood Bayesian approach in which measured Tb and Tb simulated using a forward direct model are compared
