Abstract
In this work, a new methodology to estimate the Faraday Rotation Angle (FRA) from SMOS full-pol brightness temperature is presented. This approach is focused on retrieving the Vertical Total Electron Content (VTEC) and then, the FRA for most of the SMOS overpass, with the final aim of improving geophysical retrievals. © 2018 IEEE This work has been supported by the European Space Agency and Deimos Engenharia (Portugal), SMOS P7 Subcontract DME CP12 no. 2015-005; ERDF (European Regional Developm...
