Abstract
The Federated Satellite System mission (FSSCat), winner of the 2017 Copernicus Masters Competition and the first ESA third-party mission based on CubeSats, aimed to provide coarse-resolution soil moisture estimations and sea ice concentration maps by means of the passive microwave measurements collected by the Flexible Microwave Payload-2 (FMPL-2). The mission was successfully launched on 3 September 2020. In addition to the primary scientific objectives, FMPL-2 data are used in this study to es...
