Statistical Analysis of Aquarius Radiometer Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and Implications on RFI Detection and MitigationThe Aquarius/SAC-D mission operated between August 2011 and June 2015 with the main goal of providing global estimates of sea surface salinity (SSS). It comprised both active and passive microwave sensors operating at L-band to observe the same surface area almost simultaneously. Measurements from both instruments underwent subsequent filtering to mitigate the effect of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). This report describes the analysis of statistics of RFI in samples acquired by the Aquarius radiometers, and its results could be used to improve the performance of the interference detection algorithm.
