Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) is a very important océanographie parameter that can be measured using L-band microwave radiometry. The measured brightness temperature measured over the ocean is influenced by the sea state that can even mask the salinity signature. Reflectometry using navigation signals (GNSS-R) has been proven to achieve sea state determination and has been proposed to be used to correct the measured brightness temperature for the sea state effect. In this framework, the "Advanced L-BAnd emissiviTy and Reflectivity Observations of the Sea Surface 2009" (ALBATROSS 2009) field experiment was undertaken collecting an extensive dataset of collocated radiometnc and reflectometnc measurements. In this paper the experimental results and mam conclusions of the ALBATROSS 2009 field experiment are presented.
