An ocean's salinity is affected by water and air temperature, the volume of water
that flows into it, its age and the chemical composition of surrounding geological
Near where rivers reach the ocean, the salt content (salinity) will be lower. In fact,
because salt water is more dense than fresh water, the river's water will ...
The salinity of seawater is usually 35 parts per thousand (also written as o/oo) in
most marine areas. This salinity measurement is a total of all the salts that are ...
The average salinity of seawater for all Earth's oceans is about 35 grams of
dissolved salts per kilogram of seawater. This is shown as 35 parts per thousand,
Seawater is water from a sea or ocean. On average, seawater in the world's
oceans has a salinity of approximately 3.5%, or 35 parts per thousand. This
Salinity is a measure of the concentration of dissolved salts in water. Until
recently, a common way to define salinity values has been parts per thousand (
Global salinity patterns are linked to rainfall and evaporation. Salinity affects
seawater density, which in turn governs ocean circulation and climate.The higher
