Original versionThis report is not to be quoted without prior consultation with the General Secretary.
The paper describes a way of measuring salinity by direct measurements of the fraction of total sound velocity that is dependent of salinity only. Preliminary experiments indicate an obtainable precision of appr. 1/100 0^/00, The design seeks to obtain a high degree of long term stability at the cost of reduced bandwith.
