### Abstract

Equations of state for seawater were derived from the sound velocity data of Wilson (1960b) and from that of Del Grosso and Mader (1972). The maximum difference between the two sets of sound data (1. 77 m/sec) resulted in a difference of 35 multiplied by 10** minus **6cm**3g** minus **1 in specific volume. The equation of state is reliable in specific volume to within plus or minus 10 multiplied by 10** minus **6cm**3g** minus **1, in expansibility to within plus or minus 2 multiplied by 10** minus **6deg** minus **1, and in compressibility within plus or minus 0. 01 multiplied by 10** minus **6bar** minus **1. Therefore, it should be used to calculate the most precise P-V-T properties of seawater.
