First CCI+SSS maps now available
The first version of satellite Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) maps produced by the ESA CCI (Climate Change Initiative) SSS project by combining SMOS-CATDS, AQUARIUS and SMAP SSS over the 2010-2018 period are now available. Systematic differences between SSS obtained from the various instruments and under various geometries have been homogeneized using a methodology similar to the one developped and implemented at CATDS (Centre Aval de Traitement des Données SMOS).
