SMOS MIRAS Level 1B Full Polarization (SMOS.MIRAS.MIR_SC_F1B)Entry ID: SMOS.MIRAS.MIR_SC_F1B
Abstract: The SMOS level-1b products are the output of the image reconstruction of the SMOS observation measurements and consist of Fourier Components of Brightness Temperatures in the antenna polarisation reference frame. The L1B products consist of two measurements data set presented by snapshot and order by time stamp. The first measurement data set contains the values of the Fourier Components of the ... Brightness Temperature relative to the scene with lowest contrast. The second measurements data set contains the Brightness temperature biases which shall be added back to the lowest contrast scene in the L1c processing.
The default mode for MIRAS has been decided to by full polarisation. In full-pol every alternate integration time generates a data set record (H or V), and the next one generates two data set records (HV and V or HV and H).
Snapshots are sorted in half orbits (50min).
