Annual Mean Seawater Salinity - Surface

Annual Mean Seawater Salinity - Surface
Created by: ryancope10
Color-coded annual mean seawater salinity at the surface (5 m). Red shows higher salinity waters (over 37 parts per thousand) and blue/purple show lower salinity waters (less than 33 parts per thousand). The data are from the Estimating the Circulation & Climate of the Ocean (ECCO) Jet Propulsion Laboratory Data Assimilation Project. ECCO was established in 1998 as part of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment with the goal of combining a general circulation model with diverse observations in order to produce a quantitative depiction of the time- evolving global ocean state.
