SMOS Space Weather

 November 14, 2022 @ 13:00 - 17:00 UTC+2

The workshop:

  • reported the results of ESA projects exploring usage of SMOS dataset to retrieve L-band Solar Flux and Total Electron Content of the atmosphere
  • collected feedback and interest from the Space Weather Community and Solar scientist about novel operational products and future joint studies focused to assess the impact of SMOS dataset in Space Weather models and/or applications.
