Can we measure how salty the ocean is from space? 🌊 #shorts


ESA’s Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission was launched in 2009 and has now over a decade orbiting our planet.

Ocean salinity can be detected from space by its effect on the electromagnetic emissions from the ocean surface.

Besides ocean salinity, SMOS also measures soil moisture, which is very helpful for many applications, including monitoring droughts.
