Project Description

ARGANS leads a consortium aiming to contribute to an integrated observation system for the Arctic, in particular providing a sea surface salinity time series (2011-2019) from SMOS & SMAP satellites tailored for the Arctic region. This will inform scientific investigation of salinity dynamics in relation to climate processes in the Arctic e.g. ocean circulation and land-ocean freshwater fluxes on a regional scale, including producing a scientific roadmap for future research activities.
