Description
Description: Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Bath, Bath, UK. This paper introduces a potential method for the remote sensing of sea surface salinity (SSS) using measured propagation delay of low-frequency Loran-C signals transmitted over an all-seawater path between the Sylt station in Germany and an integrated Loran-C/GPS receiver located in Harwich, UK. The overall delay variations in Loran-C surface waves along the path may be explained by changes in sea surface properties (especially the temperature and salinity), as well as atmospheric dynamics that determine the refractive index of the atmosphere. After removing the atmospheric and sea surface temperature (SST) effects, the residual delay revealed a temporal variation similar to that of SSS data obtained by the European Space Agency's Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite.
