Tuesday, January 17th, NASA scientists Gary Lagerloef and David Le Vine will kick off a two-part webinar series focusing on never-before-seen discoveries by the Aquarius/SAC-D satellite mission. By measuring our salty seas, Aquarius sheds light on the inner workings of ocean circulation as well as providing more insight into global system processes such as climate. The 90-minute webinar for educators will reveal some of the complexities of getting accurate salinity measurements from space, as well as the many challenges that have been addressed throughout the history of the Aquarius mission.

As part of each interactive webinar, attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a live question and answer session with the presenting scientists. The concept map-based webinars will also provide participants with a rich collection of educational resources relating to Aquarius, salinity and technology.
