Abstract

The relative densities of 283 samples of Mediterranean Sea waters collected near Gibraltar were measured at 25°C with a vibrating densimeter. The measured densities agree on the average to ±3.9 × 10-6 g cm-3 with those predicted from the equation of state of Millero, Gonzalez and Ward (Journal of Marine Research, 34, 61-93, 1976). The densities and conductivity salinities of weight diluted Mediterranean waters have also been determined. These results agree on the average to ±2 × 10-6 g cm-3 in density, and ±0.003% in salinity with our earlier measurements on standard seawater. These results indicate that Mediterranean Sea waters have the same physical chemical properties as evaporated standard seawater at the same conductivity salinity.
