Mediterranean SMOS SSS maps

SSS maps in the Mediterranean Sea are computed at BEC using a new methodological approach to cope with land and RFI contamination.


Two different products are generated

Objective analised data

Daily map of 9 day objective analysed data in a rectangular grid at 0.25ยบ resolution, from 2011 to 2013.

Fused data

Daily fused with Reynolds SST maps in a rectangular grid at 0.25o resolution, from 2011 to 2013

These maps have been validated with near-surface measurements provided by Argo profilers, which allow us to define several quality metrics.
