    This atlas consists of a description of data analysis procedures and horizontal maps of annual, seasonal, and monthly climatological distribution fields of salinity at selected standard depth levels of the world ocean on a one-degree latitude-longitude grid. The aim of the maps is to illustrate large-scale charactiristics of the distribution of ocean salinity. The fields used to generate these climatological maps were computed by objective analyses of all scientifically quality-controlled historical salinity data in the World Ocean Database 2005. Maps are presented for climatological composite periods (annual, seasonal, monthly, seasonal and monthly difference fields from the annual mean field, and the number of observations) at selected standard depths.
