9. The Salinity of Oceans Water Varies (C97)

The salinity of ocean water varies from place to place. In warm, dry regions, evaporation of water from the ocean surface and little precipitation cause ocean water to have a high salinity. In cold regions, salinity is lower because less evaporation takes place and melting ice and snow add fresh water. Areas of lower salinity also occur where freshwater rivers enter the ocean.
