These products have been generated from the last version of SMOS-OS Level 2 products provided by ESA (v6.22). Additionally, Land Sea Contamination has been mitigated by means of the empirical salinity debiasing method proposed in [Olmedo et al., 2016].

These products have been generated from SMOS-OS Level 2 products provided by ESA (v5.50). These level 3 and level 4 Sea Surface Salinity products are generated since year 2013 in near real time mode, whereas the prior period (2010-2013) has been generated during 2013 reprocessing campaign
