The distribution of salt in the tropical Pacific Ocean and its variability are potentially important in better understanding the E1 Nifio Southern Oscillation (ENSO) ocean-atmosphere coupled system. Complementary data sets (including sea surface salinity (SSS) derived from a ship-of-opportunity network, Geosat sea level and derived zonal surface currents, and outgoing longwave radiation-derived precipitation, evaporation, and cruise measurements along the 165øE longitude) are used to describe… CONTINUE READING
