The new Thermodynamic Equation of Seawater 2010 (TEOS‐10) provides a highly accurate, thermodynamically consistent, and complete representation of all thermodynamic properties of seawater over a wide range in temperature and salinity. These properties include density, sound speed, heat capacity, enthalpy, chemical potential, and many others. Here we provide simple procedures by which limnological studies can take advantage of TEOS‐10. These require replacing the TEOS‐10 salinity argument… 
Thermodynamic properties of seawater, ice and humid air: TEOS-10, before and beyond
Abstract. In the terrestrial climate system, water is a key player in the form of its different ambient phases of ice, liquid and vapour, admixed with sea salt in the ocean and with dry air in the
A practical approach to lake water density from electrical conductivity andtemperature
Abstract. Density calculations are essential to study stratification, circulation patterns, internal wave formation and other aspects of hydrodynamics in lakes and reservoirs. Currently, the most

The analysis of water and sediments from the lake revealed a diverse microbial community composed of bacteria and archaea that are close relatives of species known to use reduced N, S or Fe and CH4 as energy sources, providing unequivocal evidence that subglacial environments in this region of West Antarctica host active microbial ecosystems that participate in sub glacial biogeochemical cycling.
Permanent Thermohaline Staircases in the Tyrrhenian Sea
The longest historical time series (14 years, from 2003 to 2016) of temperature and salinity of thermohaline staircases with highly homogeneous and reliable data ever observed is here presented and
Scientific access into Mercer Subglacial Lake: scientific objectives, drilling operations and initial observations
Abstract The Subglacial Antarctic Lakes Scientific Access (SALSA) Project accessed Mercer Subglacial Lake using environmentally clean hot-water drilling to examine interactions among ice, water,
Evaluation of Physical Chemical and Biological Characteristics of Underground Wells in Badra City, Iraq
The quality of groundwater should be improved by keeping safe water sources from contaminants in protective way by doing regular measuring and checkup before it supplied for usage. Private Wells do


A Gibbs function for seawater thermodynamics for -6 to 80 °C and salinity up to 120gkg-1
The effects of biogeochemical processes on oceanic conductivity/salinity/ density relationships and the characterization of real seawater
Abstract. As seawater circulates through the global ocean, its relative composition undergoes small variations. This results in changes to the conductivity/salinity/density relationship, which is
Thermophysical property anomalies of Baltic seawater
Abstract. While the thermodynamic properties of Standard Seawater are very well known, the quantitative effect of sea salt composition anomalies on various properties is difficult to estimate since
A model for predicting changes in the electrical conductivity, practical salinity, and absolute salinity of seawater due to variations in relative chemical composition
Abstract. Salinity determination in seawater has been carried out for almost 30 years using the Practical Salinity Scale 1978. However, the numerical value of so-called practical salinity, computed
Calculating density of water in geochemical lake stratification models
To model chemically stratified lakes numerically, chemical transformations must be reflected in the density function. In this contribution, partial molal volumes are used to calculate density from
Absolute Salinity, ''Density Salinity'' and the Reference-Composition Salinity Scale: present and future use in the seawater standard TEOS-10
Abstract. Salinity plays a key role in the determination of the thermodynamic properties of seawater and the new TEOS-101 standard provides a consistent and effective approach to dealing with
