Salinity of the ocean water is defined as the dissolved salt content in a body of water. The salinity of the ocean is 3.5%, the salinity increases as you approach the equator and decreases as you approach the poles.
ocean because the ocean or you could say the sea is filled with salt water. :)
About 3.5% About 3.5%
Salinity is below average in places where large amounts of fresh water enters the ocean. Salinity tends to be above average in the areas that are extremely hot or cold. Salinity may also be above average in polar waters.
the salinity is 103967 per liter to 235356 per liter btw this is wrong
97% for salt water, and 3% for fresh water in ocean water
Malum nahi yaar
how does salinity create ocean currents
its 20 ppt (parts per thousand)
Salinity lies between 3% and 5%
Where a major river enters. Where a large glacier enters. Where an ice shelf is melting. Upon reflection, about one half of the ocean will have a salinity less than the average.
the average is 35 ppt. varies from 32-37 ppt. hope this helps.
Hypersaline refers to a body of water that has about 40 parts per mil salinity which is much higher than the salinity for average ocean water which is about 35 parts per mil salinity.
The role salinity plays in ocean currents is in shaping them.
Salinity plays the role of helping to circulate the ocean currents
The Red Sea has a high salinity because it has no river to supply it with freshwater and since it is so hot there, there is fast evaporation and very little precipitation.
Salinity is the saltiness or dissolved salt content of a body of water.The average ocean salinity is 35 ppt. This number varies between about 32 and 37 ppt. Rainfall, evaporation, river runoff, and ice formation cause the variations. For example, the Black Sea is so diluted by river runoff, its average salinity is only 16 ppt.
The temperature and the minerals in the ocean are the two factors that affect salinity of ocean water.
You could increase the salinity of the ocean by adding salt or removing water (ie: by evaporation).
The Salinometer or the Barometer is used to measure the salinity of the Ocean water.
