SMOS and SMAP consistent NRT wind sensing during intercepts of a comma-Extra-tropical cyclone in the Aleutian Islands (Dec 2019)
SMOS (left) and SMAP (right) NRT winds on the 24th Dec 2019 during the satellite swath intercepts of an extra tropical comma-shape storm developing in the North Pacific along the Aleutian Islands. SMOS local acquisition time at the storm maximum wind location is 1h before SMAP. SMAP NRT data are from REMSS
Note the consistency between both estimates of the wind fields.
