Ocean Salinity Science and Salinity Remote Sensing Workshop
26-Nov - 28-Nov 2014
The Ocean Salinity Science and Salinity Remote Sensing Workshop aimed to review progress made in using Ocean Salinity data: Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) and subsurface; to identify scientific challenges and benefits of using satellite SSS data in the wider ocean community in synergy with other data sources (in situ, satellite, model); and thus to foster the use of the new SSS data from space in the wider ocean and climate science communities. The workshop was jointly organised by ESA, NOC, IFREMER, LOCEAN, CATDS, SatOC, ICM-CSIC and Met Office.
The main workshop's objectives were:
- To review the progress in our understanding of ocean salinity and associated processes
- To present the status of satellite remote sensing of sea surface salinity and its contribution to ocean science
- To explore techniques and challenges associated with the use of salinity data in ocean models
- To identify the most promising future applications for satellite-derived estimates of sea surface salinity
- To review user requirements for future satellite-derived estimates of sea surface salinity
- To prioritise future activities for ocean salinity science.
