A prospective sounding of the capabilities of a novel salinity retrieval by means of Support Vector Regression has been performed. Co-located SMOS measurements and additional auxiliary parameters have been considered, whilst salinity data collected by ARGO buoys represented the ground-truth to be matched by the algorithm. Salinity fields estimated by the SVR are in good agreement with the ground-truth, suggesting that the chosen approach can be promising, despite its robustness and versatility needs to be assessed over wider areas and time lags, and in various combinations of SMOS features.
