Determining Salinity by Simple Means.
Schlenker, Richard M.
This paper describes the construction and use of a simple salinometer. The salinometer is composed, mainly, of a milliammeter and a battery and uses the measurement of current flow to determine the salinity of water. A complete list of materials is given, as are details of construction and operation of the equipment. The use of the salinometer in various science courses is discussed and a sample lesson plan is given. (BB)
