The Salinity Processes in the Upper Ocean Regional Study (SPURS) project is a NASA-funded oceanographic campaign aimed at elucidating key mechanisms responsible for near-surface salinity variations in the ocean. Over the period August 2016 through November 2017, SPURS-2 deployed a suite of in situ sampling technologies to study a low-salinity, high precipitation region in the eastern tropical Pacific, including the state-of-the-art wind and solar powered unmanned surface vehicle (USV) called Saildrone. Saildrone provides observations of salinity, temperature, and other variables that enables ....
