Abstract
SMOS is the acronym for the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity mission by the European Space Agency (ESA) [1]. Its single payload, the Microwave Imaging Radiometer using Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS), was successfully launched in November 2009. Along more than six years of operation, SMOS calibration and imaging algorithms have undergone a continuous evolution to further improve the accuracy of the retrieved geophysical parameters for a variety of scientific applications related with soil moisture an...
