T-S algorithms

An algorithm of salinity as a function of temperature has been developed for 2º x 2º boxes for the whole Canary Basin, from Africa to the 19ºW and from 26ºN to 36ºN, a region that includes the Seine Seamount. The good skill of the algorithm to infer both salinity and indirect quantities (density, dynamic heights, velocities, etc.) has been verified using independent data sets. The results should allow using expendable bathythermographs, routineraly deployed from opportunity ships, to obtain dynamic quantities, both for operational and scientific oceanographic applications. The results have been published in a scientific journal (Scientia Marina).
