How salty are the world’s oceans? Ocean salinity is a key variable of Earth’s water cycle and a key driver of ocean dynamics. Progress in Ocean Salinity Science - Eos eos.org/meeting-reports/ progress-in-ocean-salinity-science Progress in Ocean Salinity Science . 2018 Ocean Salinity Science Conference; Paris, France, 6–9 November 2018. Various sensors on satellites and in the ocean complement each other to monitor the ... The Global Climate Observing System and the Global Ocean Observing System have identified ocean salinity as an essential climate variable: a ‘must-include’ variable in climate models. Ocean Salinity Website www. oceansalinity conference2018.org/QuickEventWebsite... The conference will review progress and ongoing work and will identify next frontiers in the fields of ocean salinity science . In doing so it will focus on recent progress in: Observing ocean salinity ; Process-based insights from field observations ; Ocean dynamics and salinity assimilation in ocean models Recently, through the advent of new observing technologies, research based on salinity measurements has gained prominence within the scientific and operational communities.
