Abstract
In this paper, retrieval results obtained using the last version (V650) of SMOS level 2 algorithms are tested considering pixels of Africa and South America. Yearly average values of vegetation optical depth are compared against forest height estimates at continental scale. For selected areas of African woody savannah, multitemporal trends of SM and VOD are compared against environmental variables available from Climatic Research Unit data base.
