AbstractA few months before the foreseen SMOS launch date (first half of 2009), the interests of the scientists working on the Ocean Salinity Level 2 definition are mainly focused on improving the accuracy of the retrieval algorithm. The algorithm used is based on an iterative procedure in which a >cost function>, that relates models, measurements, and auxiliary data, is minimized. For this reason most of the efforts are currently centered in the analysis and the optimization of the cost function. Within this frame, the study proposed represents a contribution to assess one of the pending issues in the definition of the cost function: The optimal weight to give to the MIRAS measurements. To do this a set of simulations have been run using: - The Ocean PArallelise (OPA) Model [1] as source of geophysical parameters; - The SMOS End-to-end Performance Simulator (SEPS) [2] as source of synthetic SMOS-like brightness temperatures imagery; - SMOS-Level2 Processor Simulator (SMOS-L2PS) [3] to perform the retrieval. Results are presented and discussed
