Would you expect the seawater just below the floating ice in the Arctic Ocean to be higher or lower in salinity then the water in the deep zone there?

When ocean water freezes into sea ice, some of the salt is incorporated into the new ice. Thereafter, that salt drains as brine (salt plus water), causing the layer of water below to be of higher salinity.
