Ocean Salinity Variations

• Precipitation and evaporation patterns over the oceans have changed, increasing ocean salinity near the equator and decreased salinity at higher latitudes

• As more water evaporates near the equator, the upper part of the oceans in these areas increase in salinity as a result

• On the other hand, as it ice melts, the excess fresh water dilutes the salinity in higher latitudes (which could have major consequences for the oceanic circulation patterns)

• Salinity variations provide additional evidence of a warming Planet
