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...
