Sea Surface Salinity

Generating improved calibrated global Sea Surface Salinity fields over a 10-year period (2010-2019) from all available satellite L-band radiometer measurements.

About project

Sea Surface Salinity plays a fundamental role in the density-driven global ocean circulation, the water cycle and climate.

The CCI+ phase of the Sea Surface Salinity project will involve fully exploiting the ESA/Earth explorer SMOS mission complemented with SMAP and AQUARIUS satellite missions. The project gathers teams involved in earth observation remote sensing, in the validation of satellite data and in climate variability study.
