The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission will carry state-of-the-art technology in the form of a sophisticated interferometric radiometer called MIRAS. Its large Y-shaped antenna detects microwave radiation emitted from the surface of the Earth and translates the data into maps of soil moisture and ocean salinity.
