I think it is a measure of conductivity and not actual salinity? Is Ms micro Siemens? Next time...

    Does anyone know of a conductivity meter that can measure the conductivity of sea water to 53.0 +/- 0.1 mS/cm2. (This is a SG of 1.0260 +/- 0.0001). OK and doesn't cost more than $200. If you know of another way to acheive this precision chime in.

  20. The THINK Tank
    Recently I came across a hydrometer that can stay in he tank full time as long as it was submerged at 6cm (I think, may have been as high as 8cm). I start thinking how could you make a digital Hydromter or did such an item exist and is there a damand for such a item. Well if you are really...
