New Global Salinity Data: Spicing up STEM in the Classroom

Eighty six percent of global evaporation and seventy eight percent of global precipitation occur over the oceans. Sea surface salinity is a key variable in understanding how fresh water input and output affect ocean dynamics and provide a better understanding of ocean-atmosphere interactions linking the water cycle, ocean circulation and climate variability. The Aquarius instrument is measuring this much-needed variable.
