Ocean Salinity Science Conference 2018

06 - 09 November 2018

Jointly organized by ESA and CNES, the 2018 Ocean Salinity Science Conference will take place from 06 to 09 November 2018 at the Sorbonne University, Paris, France.


Ocean salinity is a key parameter that links various elements of the water cycle to ocean circulation dynamics and climate. Furthermore, salinity is a key dynamical parameter that influences oceans dynamics. Through the advent of new observing technologies, remote sensing and in situ, salinity research has gained much attention over the recent years, now leading to rapidly growing new insights.


The conference intends to bring together communities working on all aspects of ocean salinity investigations, including analyses undertaken from in situ and satellite observations, numerical models, and data assimilation. The conference will review progress and ongoing work, and aims to identify the next frontiers in the fields of ocean salinity science. In particular, it will focus on recent progress in:


  1. Observing ocean salinity
  2. Process-based insights from field observations
  3. Ocean dynamics and salinity assimilation in ocean models
  4. Global freshwater cycle and climate variability
  5. Biogeochemistry
  6. Surface freshwater fluxes, run off, and sea ice.
  7. Challenges and requirements for future salinity observing, remote sensing and in situ.

Abstract submission deadline: 14 July 2018

Registration deadline: 15 October 2018
