Smos will investigate the hydrological cycle by measuring changes in soil moisture and ocean salinity. It will do this by observing variations in the natural microwave emission coming up off the planet's surface. The data is expected to have wide uses but should improve weather forecasts and warnings of extreme events, such as floods.
