Temperature-density, temperature-conductivity and conductivity-density relationships for marine-derived saline lake waters.Entry ID: AADC-00078
Abstract: This dataset is a record of the data in the ANARE Research Notes 78: Temperature-density, temperature-conductivity and conductivity-density relationships for marine-derived saline lake waters. Authors: John A.E. Gibson, John M. Ferris and Harry R. Burton.
Abstract per ANARE 78: Equations, determined using water samples from marine-derived saline lakes in Vestfold Hills, Antarctica, relating ... sigma T [=(density-1000) kg/m^3 at temperature between -15 degrees C and 40 degrees C to sigma 20, electrical conductivity at temperatures from -15 degrees C to 20 degrees C to conductivity at 0 degrees C, and sigma 20 to electrical conductivity at 0 degrees C are given. These relationships allow in situ sigma T to be calculated from in situ electrical conductivity and temperature data.
Fields in this data set are:
Sample Source (ie Lake Name and Depth)
sigma 20 and quadratic coefficients
Comparison of sigma T using temperature-density relationships
Comparison of conductivities calculated
