Meetings: Ocean Salinity Conference 2022

June 6-9, 2022
Columbia University, New York City, New York, USA
With over 100 participants, the Ocean Salinity Conference 2022 fostered scientific exchanges and collaborations in the broad community involved in ocean salinity science, applications, technology development, product services, and community building. This was part of a series of international salinity community meetings (Brest, France - 2013; Exeter, UK - 2014; Hamburg, Germany - 2015; Falmouth/MA, USA - 2017; and Paris, France - 2018). The group reviewed recent progress, identified knowledge and capability gaps, and charted the way forward to sustain and enhance the ocean salinity observing system as well as to maximize the value of the resulting measurements.
