ESA’s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission will provide global maps of soil moisture and ocean salinity. Soil moisture data are urgently required for hydrological studies; data on ocean salinity are vital for improving our understanding of ocean circulation patterns. Together, these data will contribute to furthering our knowledge of Earth’s water cycle, and help to improve climate, weather and extreme-event forecasting.
