Abstract

The speed of sound in standard seawater is measured relative to that in pure water as a function of temperature in the range 0 to 40 degree C and salinity in the range 5 to 40% at one atm. The resulting sound speeds fit an equation to a standard deviation of 0. 04 m sec** minus **1 over the entire ranges of temperature and salinity.
