salinity

listen to the pronunciation of salinity
English - Turkish
tuzluluk
{i} tuzluluk oranı
hafif
English - English
The concentration of salt in a solution
The quality of being saline
The degree of salt in water The rise in sea level due to global warming would result in increased salinity of rivers, bays and aquifers This would affect drinking water, agriculture and wildlife (Source: Mintzer, 1992)
The content of totally dissolved solids in water, expressed in ppm or in mg/l
The total quantity of dissolved salts, measured by weight in parts per thousand
A measurement of the amount of salt in water Generally reported as "parts per thousand" (i e , grams of salt per 1,000 grams of water) and abbreviated as "ppt" or ‰ Salinity also is reported as "practical salinity units" and abbreviated as "psu "
the relative proportion of salt in a solution
Amount of dissolved salts in a given volume of water
The concentration of salts in water
– A measure of the salt content of water, usually expressed in parts per thousand (ppt, o/oo)
A measure of the quantity of dissolved salts in sea water The total amount of dissolved solids in sea water in parts per thousand by weight
A measure of the salt concentration of water Higher salinity means more dissolved salts
Salineness
Chemicals dissolved within the soil water, often salt, which add an osmotic pressure to the matrix potential for the purposes of plant water abstraction across root membranes by osmosis Measured as the electrical conductivity of a saturated soil water solution, (mmhos/cm; dS/m)
(1) the relative concentration of salts, usually sodium chloride, in a given water It is usually expressed in terms of the number of ppm of chloride (2) a measure of the concentration of dissolved mineral substances in water
{i} quality of containing salt; similarity to salt; saltiness
the taste experience when salt is taken into the mouth
For most purposes, salinity is considered the total dissolved salt concentration of water Salinity is normally expressed in parts per thousand
Salinity (S) is a parameter used in oceanography to describe the concentration of dissolved salts in seawater It is defined in terms of electrical conductivity relative to a standard solution of KCl When expressed in units of parts per thousand, S may be roughly equated to the concentration of dissolved material in grams per kilogram of seawater
The total quantity of dissolved salts in water, usually measured by weight in milligrams per liter (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm) The upper limit for freshwater is 1,000 mg/L; natural seawater has a salinity of approximately 35,000 mg/L
Concentration of dissolved salts found in a sample of water Measured as the total amount of dissolved salts in parts per thousand Seawater has an average salinity of about 34 parts per thousand
A measure of the amount of dissolved solids in the water
A measure of the amount of salt in seawater, measured in parts per thousand (ppt) Natural seawater has a salinity of about 35 ppt
The concentration of salt dissolved in water
The total amount of solid material in grams contained in 1 kilogram of sea water when all the carbonate has been converted to oxide, the bromine and iodine replaced by chlorine, and all organic matter completely oxidized S(°/oo) = 1 806,55 x Cl (°/oo) Where Cl(°/oo) is chlorinity in parts per thousand See chlorinity
A measure of the quantity or concentration of dissolved salts in water
Measure of the total quantity of dissolved solids in sea water in parts per thousand by weight when all the carbonate has been converted to oxide, the bromide and iodide to chloride, and all the organic matter is completely oxidized Ocean-water salinity varies in the range 33-8 parts per thousand, with an average of 35 parts per thousand
proportion or amount of salt in water
The relative concentration of dissolved salts in water
A measure of the quantity of dissolved salts in sea water It is formally defined as the total amount of dissolved solids in sea water in parts per thousand ([s]) by weight when all the carbonate has been converted to oxide, the bromide and iodide to chloride, and all organic matter is completely oxidized These qualifications result from the chemical difficulty in drying in salts in sea water In practice, salinity is not determined directly but is computed from chlorinity, electrical conductivity, refractive index, or some other property whose relationship to salinity is well established The relationship between chlorinity Cl and salinity S as set forth in { Knudsen } 's tables isIFI In 1940, however, {Lyman} and {Fleming} found that the relationship between total dissolved salts [s] and chlorinity was better expressed by IFI
salineness

The improved surfacing material, by virtue of the well-known properties of salt incorporated therein, prevents the accumulation of ice or the solidification of moisture upon the pavement, the salineness of the sand in the composition or material having a tendency directly to dissolve or melt ice on the pavement.
