"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.";

Using griddap to Request Data and Graphs from Gridded Datasets

griddap lets you request a data subset, graph, or map from a gridded dataset (for example, sea surface temperature data from a satellite), via a specially formed URL. griddap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its projection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

griddap request URLs must be in the form
For example,
Thus, the query is often a data variable name (e.g., analysed_sst), followed by [(start):stride:(stop)] (or a shorter variation of that) for each of the variable's dimensions (for example, [time][latitude][longitude]).

For details, see the griddap Documentation.
