View Resource Why is the Ocean Salty?

This resource explains how the oceans became salty. Topics include the source of the salt, how rainwater dissolves rock and carries the material away as dissolved ions, and the two most common ions in seawater. A link to additional information is also provided.

View Resource NASA Aquarius: Sea Surface Salinity from Space Education & Public Outreach

Aquarius is a focused satellite mission to measure global sea surface salinity. Launching in 2009, this mission will provide the first global map of sea surface salinity with unprecedented accuracy, resolution and coverage. The importance of salinity measurements in understanding coastal ocean processes is critical. Because of its dynamic range in the coastal oceans, salinity is a critical factor...
