Mediterranean and North Atlantic SMOS SSS maps V2.0
SSS maps in the Mediterranean Sea and North Atlantic are computed at BEC using a new methodological approach to cope with land and RFI contamination.
Two different products are generated
Objective analysed data
Daily map of 9-day objective analyzed data in a rectangular grid at 0.25º resolution, from 2011 to 2016. For ascending and descending orbits.
Daily fused with OSTIA SST maps in a rectangular grid at 0.05o resolution, from 2011 to 2016
These maps have been validated with near-surface measurements provided by Argo profilers, which allow us to define several quality metrics.
