Tropical Pacific Ocean Sea Surface Salinity, Observations and Monthly Analyses

| DOI: 10.5065/DQCM-JQ29

Sea surface salinity measurements from the tropical Pacific Ocean were used to derive monthly grids (1969-1995), and annual and monthly climatologies based on the 1979-1992 period. The source "bucket" data (1969-1998) and thermosalinograph data (1990-1999) from ships are also included in the dataset. These data along with moored buoy, hydrocast, and CTDs were used to compute the gridded fields.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
