What are the two factors that affect the salinity of ocean water?
The temperature and the minerals in the ocean are the two factors that affect salinity of ocean water. ...
Asked in Oceanography
How do salinity and temperature affect the density of water?
As salinity and temperature rise, water density increases.

How does salt in soil affect humans?
Salinity becomes a problem when enough salts accumulate in the root zone to negatively affect plant growth. Excess salts in the root zone hinder plant roots from withdrawing water from surrounding soil. This lowers the amount of water available to the plant, regardless of the amount of water actually in the root zone. The main point is that excess salinity in soil water can decrease plant available water and cause plant stress. Decreased plant growth translates into less agriculture to sustain human population...

How does salinity affect plant growth?
Depends entirely upon the plant and the salinity - all plants have a small range of tolerance but different plant species have a very wide range and some plants are actually restricted to growing in positions which stand in sea-water. Numerically, there are far more species intolerant of salinity than there are that tolerate it. ...

How does salinity affect water temperature?
The temperature and salinity of seawater determine its density. Water gets denser as it gets saltier and reaches a maximum density at 4 °C. Salinity does affect the boiling point and freezing point of water, but not its temperature. ...

How does the salinity of water affect how well objects can float or sink in the water?
the higher the salinity the more easily an object can float

Why are cutin stomata and guard cells absent in elodea?
Cutin, stomata and guard cells are used for water loss prevention. These are not needed because Elodea is a water plant. ...
