PL24A:
Ocean Salinity in Support of Scientific and Environmental Demands III Posters

Session ID#: 84956

Session Description:
The session welcomes contributions highlighting the importance of salinity in oceanographic studies and environmental applications. Potential topics include the role of salinity in enhancing our knowledge of Earth system interaction; linkages between the ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere, and land, including hydrological and biogeochemical cycles; ocean circulation; and climate variability and predictability. We invite a broad range of studies that utilize the current salinity observing system consisting of in situ and satellite platforms, as well estimates from data assimilation products and climate model projections. The joint use of salinity and other physical, biological, and chemical variables that stimulate the collaboration between different communities is appreciated. Studies highlighting the utility of salinity measurements in environmental assessments, operational oceanography and forecasts, and the development of science-informed decisions are particularly encouraged.
