Short summary
This work deals with the use of sea surface salinity measurements from space in the context of operational oceanography. The salinity plays an important role in the ocean–atmosphere coupling, especially when an El Niño event occurs in the tropical Pacific. However, it is still difficult to use such data in ocean models due to a large extent to large-scales biases. This study shows that from recent data with a suitable bias correction scheme, it is possible to improve our forecast skill.
