dc.description.abstract The NASA Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) mission will measure soil moisture with a combination of Lband radar and radiometer measurements. We present an assessment of the expected impact of radio frequency interference (RFI) on SMAP performance, incorporating projections based on recent data collected by the Aquarius and SMOS missions. We discuss the impacts of RFI on the radar and radiometer separately given the differences in (1) RFI environment between the shared radar band and the protected radiometer band, (2) mitigation techniques available for the different measurements, and (3) existing data sources available that can inform predictions for SMAP. en_US
