Two new visualizations of ocean surface salinity, celebrating over three years of successful Aquarius observations, are now available at NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio. Both are based on Version 3.0 of the Aquarius data products.
Sea surface salinity is shown on a spinning globe (with and without grid lines) from September 2011 through September 2014.
Sea surface salinity is shown on a flat map using simple Cartesian and extended Mollweide projections from September 2011 through September 2014. Versions are included with and without grid lines, and in both Atlantic- and Pacific-centered projections.
