In late May 2017, a five-day workshop was held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Oral and poster presentations focused on the following topics: (1) Salinity and the water cycle - trends and variability; (2) Remote sensing of salinity and other water cycle variables; (3) In-situ salinity measurements; (4) Synthesis of salinity measurements (Remote, in-situ, etc.); (5) Salinity process studies; (6) Freshwater discharges from land and ice; (7) Salinity processes in models; and (8) Challenges of future salinity observing, including new techniques and sustainability.
