  • Measuring the salinity of seawater

    Seawater has an average salinity of 35 ppt = 35 parts per thousand (equivalent to 35,000ppm or 3.5%). However the salt level does change depending on rainfall, evaporation, ice thawing or rivers, so the salinity can vary over areas, time or seasons. Camlab can offer two handheld meters which quickly and directly measure salinity up to the high levels required for seawater. ...
