This product integrates Sea Surface Salinity measurements provided by the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) European satellite mission. This product provides daily integrated satellite Sea Surface Salinity (SSS) measurements at global scale. The SMOS SSS maps are merged with daily Sea Surface Temperature maps in order to increase the spatial resolution of the original Level 3 SSS maps. The product has a spatial resolution of 0.05ºx0.05º and the temporal coverage is from 2011 til May 2021.
The SDC_BLS_CLIM_TS_V2 product contains Temperature and Salinity Climatologies for Black Sea including the seasonal and monthly fields for period 1955-2019 and seasonal fields for 6 decades starting from 1955 to 2014. The climatic fields were computed from the integrated Black Sea dataset that combines data extracted from the 3 major sources: 1) SeaDataNet infrastructure, 2) World Ocean Database 2018, and 3) Coriolis Ocean Dataset for Reanalysis. The computation was done with the DIVAnd (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis in n dimensions), version 2.3.1.

SDC_MED_CLIM_TS_V2 product contains Temperature and Salinity climatological fields for the Mediterranean Sea computed from SeaDataNet infrastructure and CORA (Coriolis Ocean dataset for ReAnalysis) integrated dataset. The computation was done with the DIVAnd (Data-Interpolating Variational Analysis in n dimensions) version 2.4.0
The SDC_NAT_CLIM_TS_V2 product contains Temperature and Salinity Climatologies for the North Atlantic Ocean including the seasonal and monthly fields for period 1950-2019 and seasonal fields for 6 decades starting from 1950 to 2019. Two resolutions have been processed : 1/2Â° and 1/4Â°. The climatic fields were computed from the integrated North Atlantic Ocean dataset that combines data extracted from the 2 major sources: SeaDataNet infrastructure and Coriolis Ocean Dataset for Reanalysis (CORA). The computation was done with the DIVA software, version 4.7.2.
The Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP) is a synthesis activity for ocean surface to bottom biogeochemical data collected through chemical analysis of water samples. Data for 12 core variables (salinity, oxygen, phosphate, nitrate, silicate, dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity, pH, CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113 and CCl4) are subjected to primary and secondary quality control to identify outliers and correct for measurement biases.
