The Relationship between Salinity and Temperature
While it is true that warmer waters have lower salinity than cooler waters, a greater amount of evaporation occurs at higher temperatures. You would expect that the salinity would increase, as evaporation increases, leaving behind more concentrated salt water.
Given this fact, why wouldn't water nearer the surface of our oceans have a higher salinity?
What is salinity?
Salinity refers to the saltiness, or the amount of salt dissolved in water.
Investigate if there is a relationship between salinity and geographical location.
