GlobCurrent aims to advance the quantitative estimation of ocean surface currents from satellite sensor synergy and to demonstrate the impact and advancements through user-led scientific, operational and commercial applications.  This in turn, will highlight the advantages of satellite approaches and increase the uptake and exploitation of satellite ocean current measurements.


The scientific relevance for measuring Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) is more and more recognized in the ocean community.  SSS plays an important role in the dynamics of the thermohaline circulation, ENSO, and is the key tracer for the marine branch of the global hydrological cycle, which comprises about 3/4 of the global precipitation and evaporation budget.  Ocean surface salinity is of key...

Ocean Circulation and Climate

Ocean Circulation and Climate – A 21st Century Perspective

Edited by Siedler, Griffies, Gould, and Church

Published December 2013

The ocean is one of the most important components of the climate system. It contributes large reservoirs for heat and carbon and is thus a major player in controlling climate change.

 “Ocean Circulation and Climate – A...
