The global map of the salinity, or saltiness, of Earth's ocean surface produced by NASA's new Aquarius instrument reveals a rich tapestry of global salinity patterns. The yellow / red regions of high salinity and the green / blue regions show lower salinity. Can you spot how the freshwater from rivers may affect the saltiness of the sea.
