Abstract : Salinity values determined by induction salinometers require correction for instrument drift and water sample temperature. These corrections formerly required considerable interpolation which is time consuming and subject to error. This paper gives corrections for the Beckman salinometer, models RS-7A and RS-7B in tabular form. (Author)
