Abstract
The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission by the European Space Agency (ESA) was launched in 2009 [1]. Since then, it has produced a continuous stream of valuable geophysical data over land, ice and ocean [2] However, a problem which does persist is the so-called land-sea contamination (LSC) effect, an artificial increase of brightness temperature around large land masses that enters into the ocean several hundreds of kilometers. This artifact has been found to be caused by an inconsis...
