1 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Level 2 Ocean Salinity February, 2011 ARGANS & L2OS ESL Tools for monitoring time drifts in SMOS L2OS parameters over selected ocean regions

2 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Aim – to create a tool (set of scripts) for monitoring SMOS data for pre-defined regions of interest, in particular – to observe time drifts, seasonal variations of the parameters; at first stages – maybe to help identifying L1 and instrumental problems causing drift in L2OS parameters. The results are supposed to be derived from SMOS UDP/DAP product, processed automatically, in real time (as the products appear) or post-processed; The results should be ultimately suitable for web access, similar to current ARGANS web interface to DPGS processed SMOS DAP products.

3 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Regions of Interest SouthernPacific; NorthAtlantic; TropicalPacificSW; SouthOfTasmania; EquatorialOcean; TarfayaModelregion; AmazonPlume; GulfOfBiscay; MediterranianSea; SouthernOcean; IntertropicalPacific; Spanish-IEO_Mooring;

5 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity List of geophysical parameters to monitor Roughness 1: SSS, Sigma_SSS, SST, Sigma_SST, UN10, Sigma_UN10, VN10, Sigma_VN10, TEC, Sigma_TEC; Roughness 2: SSS, Sigma_SSS, SST, Sigma_SST, TEC, Sigma_TEC, Uwav ( L20S_3.16 and lower ), Sigma_Uwav ( L20S_3.16 and lower ), WSn ( L20S_3.17 and higher ), Sigma_WSn ( L20S_3.17 and higher ), omega, Sigma_omega, phi_wsn, Sigma_phi_wsn; Roughness 3: SSS, Sigma_SSS, TEC, Sigma_TEC, WSn, Sigma_WSn, HS, Sigma_HS, phi_wsn (L20S_3.17 and higher), Sigma_phi_wsn (L20S_3.17 and higher); Cardioid: Acard, Sigma_Acard, SST, Sigma_SST;

7 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Selection algorithm For each day in specified range (say, from 15/07/2010 to 31/12/2010) -identify list of orbits within +/- n days, say n=3; -exclude from the list the orbits with wrong asc/desc and full/dual pol; -exclude orbits not having a point(s) in pre-defined Lat/Lon box For each half-orbit from the list reduced according to the algorithm above -read UDP and DAP products; -exclude -999 marked points; -exclude points at the X-swath edges (say beyond +/-300 km band); -exclude points not satisfying defined UDP flag filters; For all the points selected above, calculate statistics listed on the previous page, for each field on the page 6, plot histogram and store statistics in a file corresponding the central day of this 2*n sampling; Combine statistics for each day into time line curves;

8 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Output of the exercise N folders (corresponding to N days of observation) containing set of histograms (examples on the next page) suitable for animation to watch day-by-day changes in long-term trends for specified parameters; N folders (corresponding to N days of observation) containing set of text files with individual statistics for the time period centred around the day of observation Set of time curves with dates for X-axis and one of the statistic characteristics – for Y-axis, say, mean, median, kurtosis etc. Mean and median curves are supplied by errorbars corresponding to stdev values; separate curves are produced for (a) not filtered GP sets, (b) filtered by Xswath location and (c) filtered by UDP quality flags; Kurtosis and Skew curves are plotted without errorbars but combined into triplets non- filtered/Xswath-filtered/UDP-filtered;

16 SMOS L2 Ocean Salinity Summary We have selected a way and prepare a set of tools/scripts for statistical monitoring of retrieved SMOS parameters for selected Ocean areas; We are trying to identify and test proper statistical characteristics (mean/median/kurtosis etc); We are working on optimal filtering criteria; one preliminary conclusion – from statistical point of view, Xswath filtering does most of the job, comparing to other types of filtering;
