The Dataset's Variables and Attributes

Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL Acknowledgement String A complete description of the algorithms and quality assessment of the SMOS SSS product are described in Olmedo, E., et al.: Nine years of SMOS sea surface salinity global maps at the Barcelona Expert Center, Earth Syst. Sci. Data, 13, 857–888. This product has been developed by the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar / Barcelona Expert Center (CSIC) as part of the European Marine Observation and Data Network Physics (EMODnet Physics) - EASME/EMFF/2020/3.1.11/Lot4/SI2.838612. The development was also supported by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiviness, Spain, through the National R+D Plan under Interact Project PID2020-114623RB-C31 and previous grants and by the European Space Agency.
