Multi-Mission Optimally Interpolated Sea Surface Salinity (OISSS) Level 4 V1.0 Dataset Release
The PO.DAAC is pleased to announce the release of the Multi-Mission Optimally Interpolated Sea Surface Salinity (OISSS) Level 4 V1.0 dataset. This dataset grids the Level-2 orbital swath data from the AQUARIUS/SAC-D mission (25 August 2011 to 7 June 2015), the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission (April, 2015 - present) and Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) onto a 0.25-degree spatial and 4-day temporal grid using Optimal Interpolation (OI) . The product is available from August 28, 2011 to present. Three years and 9 months of AQUARIUS data were used between August 28, 2011 and June 7, 2015. SMAP data, available since April 2015, extends the product to present. The two-month overlap between Aquarius and SMAP was used to ensure consistency and continuity in data record. SMOS data were used only to fill the SMAP data gap during....
