Salinity of a Water Body

Output: Press calculate

Formula: salinity = mass of dissolved solids / volume of water

Introduction to Salinity of a Water Body

Salinity is a measure of the concentration of dissolved salts in a body of water. It is commonly expressed as a percentage or in parts per thousand. The formula simply calculates the salinity by dividing the mass of dissolved solids by the volume of water.

Parameter usage:

Example valid values:


Data validation

The numbers should be greater than zero for accurate results. Extremely high values of salinity can be damaging to marine life, so the practical application involves monitoring and maintaining appropriate salinity levels in aquatic ecosystems.


This formula calculates the salinity of a water body based on the mass of dissolved solids and the volume of water. It is an important parameter in oceanography and environmental studies.
