Density of seawater

Seawater, or salt water, is water from a sea or ocean. BufretLignendeOversett denne sidenThe density of an object is the ratio of its mass to its volume. Density can also be expressed as specific gravity, which is the ratio of the density of a material to the .

Since the first two digits of seawater density. This is a simple density-depth ocean water profile. Increasing salinity also increases the density of sea water. Less dense water floats on top of more dense water. New seawater density measurements were made as a function of temperature T =(27to 365) K and salinity (to g kg−1).

In order to understand the sea, some of its chemical properties are important. This page details the chemical composition of sea water, salinity, density, . In oceanography the density of seawater has been expressed historically in grams per cubic centimetre. The density of seawater is a function of .
