Meeting Objectives

The conference will review progress and ongoing work and will identify next frontiers in the fields of ocean salinity and freshwater cycle science.
In doing so it will focus on recent progress in:
  1. Observing ocean salinity
  2. Process-based insights from field observations
  3. Role of salinity in ocean dynamics
  4. Role of salinity in the global freshwater cycle and climate variability
  5. Role of salinity in biogeochemistry
  6. Aspects of surface freshwater fluxes, run off, and sea ice.
  7. Challenges of future salinity observing, remote sensing and in situ.
