How salty is your ocean? How loose is your plume?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AQUARIUS! You’ve been measuring sea surface salinity from space for over a year now.  It must feel good to be a grown up satellite giving oceanographers a whole new view of the ocean. Keep on tracking that fresh Amazon Plume, the salty subtropical seas and seasonal freshening in northern latitudes due to melting sea ice. You go girl!

Her goal in life is to throw expensive s**t in the ocean. When not at sea, she has used observations from moored, satellite and land-based instruments to understand the pathways that wind and tidal energy take from large (internal tides) to small scales (turbulence). Her current mission is to make your oceanographic data be the best data it can be.
