New reprocessed Sea Surface Salinity products at 0.25 degrees grid spacing are available online. A complete set of products (weighted averaged, optimally interpolated and fused maps) corresponding to the year 2013 has been generated. With the reprocessing of these data, BEC provides the SMOS users with a uniform set of SSS maps for most of the current operating life of SMOS (period 2010-2013).
