More Sea Stuff

Clines- the sudden change in the ocean due to depth,
  • pycnocline- density
  • thermocline- temperature
  • halocline- salinity
  • Salinity- measured in parts per thousand, average salinity 35 parts per thousand
  • Salinity increases when water is taken from the ocean- sea ice, evaporation or more salt is put in the ocean, land runoff
  • Salinity decreases when water is added to the ocean.
Be sure to review your handouts that demonstrated ocean currents.
