The Vernier Salinity Sensor uses density and electrical conductivity to measure salinity. The Salinity Sensor easily and precisely measures the total dissolved salt content in an aqueous solution. Measure water with a wide variety of salinities, from brackish water to ocean water and even hyper-saline environments. You can also study how salinity affects buoyancy or monitor salinity values in estuaries where fresh water mixes with ocean water.

Use this sensor for an accurate on-site measurement of salinity in ocean or brackish water.
Allow students to qualitatively see the difference between the ionic and molecular nature of substances in aqueous solution.
Use the probe to confirm the direct relationship between conductivity and ion concentration in an aqueous solution. Concentrations of unknown samples can then be determined.
Monitor the rate of reaction in a chemical reaction in which dissolved ions and solution conductivity varies with time due to an ionic specie being consumed or produced.
