The overall purpose of OceanSODA is to advance research towards the quantitative, accurate and routine estimate of surface ocean carbonate system parameters by means of satellite EO, especially capitalizing on the recent advent of remotely-sensed salinity measurements. The overarching objectives are:1) to explore, develop and validate algorithms relating satellite ocean variables estimates with carbonate system parameters by both developing novel data processing strategies, and also by refining existing procedures; 2)to produce a global, temporally-evolving, quasi-operational suite of OA-relevant satellite datasets, given the current lack of synoptic and frequent observations of OA parameters, in view of establishing a solid scientific basis for a potential future operationalisation;3) to explore the potential impact on science, applications and society of the different products through a number of impact assessment studies in collaboration with scientific and operational institutions.
