ESA Sea Surface Salinity Climate Change Initiative (Sea_Surface_Salinity_cci): weekly and monthly sea surface salinity products, v03.21, for 2010 to 2020

Status: Not defined
Publication State: citable

Abstract

The European Space Agency (ESA) Sea Surface Salinity Climate Change Initiative (CCI) consortium has produced global, level 4, multi-sensor Sea Surface Salinity maps covering the 2010-2020 period.

This dataset collection contains Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) v03.21 data at a spatial resolution of 50km and a time resolution of 1 week. It has been spatially sampled on a 25km EASE (Equal Area Scalable Earth) grid and 1 day of time sampling.

A monthly product is also available, at a spatial resolution of 25 km and a time resolution of 1 month. This has been spatially sampled on a 25 km EASE (Equal Area Scalable Earth) grid and 15 days of time sampling.

In addition to salinity, information on errors are provided. For more information, see the user guide and product documentation available on the Sea Surface Salinity CCI web page (linked below).

Compared to the previous version of the data, version 3 SSS and associated uncertainties are more precise and cover a longer period (Jan 2010-sept 2020); version 3 SSS are provided closer to land than version 2 SSS, with a possible degraded quality. Users might remove these additional near land data by using the lsc_qc flag.
