Abstract

Ionic interactions have been shown to affect the thermodynamic and transport properties of natural waters as well as bio- and geochemical processes taking place in these waters. The ionic interaction models used to account for these interactions have been examined. Simple additivity models are used to estimate the density and sound speed of the mixture of sea salts and seawater. The estimated values are shown to be in good agreement with the measured values. The ion pairing and specific interaction models are used to estimate the activity coefficients of ions in seawater and brines. The results are shown to be in good agreement with measured values. The estimated activity coefficients are shown to yield reliable values of the pK for the ionization of acids.
