attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String 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.
