Short Name:

SMOS Level 1B Full Polarisation

The Level 1B product comprises the result of the image reconstruction algorithm applied to the level 1A data. The brightness temperature image is available in its Fourier component in the antenna polarisation reference frame top of the atmosphere. Images are combined per integration time of 1.2s (snapshot). The removal of foreign sources (Galactic, Direct Sun, Moon) is also included in the reconstruction. Snapshot consolidation is as per Level 1A, with a maximum product size of about 115MB per half orbit.
