Du, Y., Shi, J.C., Yin, X., and Xu, Y. (10-July-16)

Sea surface salinity (SSS) has a profounding influence on the the exchanges of matter and energy at the air-ocean interface. It is also a driving force for ocean circulations. The capability of accurate measurement of SSS with high spatial and temporal resolution shall be a desirable boost to the global climate models. The scientific missions Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) [1] and Aquarius [2] are specific to this end.
