Aquarius mission from NASA

The Aquarius mission was designed to better understand the water cycle, how the ocean circulation works (temperature, salinity...) and their influence on climate. It was launched in June 2011and is now in orbit, giving its first results. Last week, the Aquarius team already gave results on the effect of the tropical storm Lee in New Orleans (sept. 2-3 2011): the Aquarius instruments detected a low-salinity level between the Mississippi river delta and the Florida panhandle. This is likely to…
