The European Space Agency's Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission will be the first one using two-dimensional aperture synthesis radiometry for Earth observation. This study presents the formulation that relates instrument observables and brightness temperature maps including cross-polar antenna voltage patterns, which may be also different from element to element. Finally, the radiometric accuracy degradation if cross-polar patterns are neglected in the image reconstruction is studied.
