Abstract : A salinity error was discovered in data measured aboard MARIA PAOLINA during the MILOC 1964 cruise. A correction value of +0.087 parts per thousand was established by comparing salinities measured at synoptic (Phase C) stations. The validity of the correction was tested statistically. Corrected Phase C salinities should be accurate to about + or - 0.01 parts per thousand. The correction is less appropriate for salinities analyzed before and after those from Phase C because the error was not constant.
