Short summary
This paper introduces a potential method for determining the salinity of the ocean surface from long-wave radio signals used for navigation (and potentially other AM radio transmissions). Here we seek to retrieve ocean surface salinity averaged along a path across the North Sea between Denmark and the UK and compare our results with satellite-derived salinity.
