Abstract : The CAROLS "Cooperative Airborne Radiometer for Ocean and Land Studies" L band radiometer was designed and built as a copy of the EMIRAD II radiometer constructed by the Technical University of Denmark team. It is a fully polarimetric and direct sampling correlation radiometer. CAROLS is installed on board a dedicated French ATR42 research aircraft, in conjunction with other airborne instruments. Following initial laboratory qualifications and other scientific campaigns, SMOS CAL/VAL campaigns involving 22 flights were carried out over South West France, the Valencia site and the Bay of Biscay (Atlantic Ocean) in spring 2010, in coordination with in situ field campaigns
