Depth and water density

  • Density increases with depth.

  • Influenced by atmospheric pressure and other factors.

Salinity and water density

Density (g / ml)

  • Freezing point of sea water (35 g/L) = -2ºC

  • Max density of sea water = -2ºC

  • Salinity of “Freshwater” ranges from 0.01 – 1.0 g/L

  • Saline lake  60 g/L

Specific heat of water

Specific Heat of Water

  • Specific heat: amount of heat in calories required to raise a unit (i.e., a gram) of the substance by 1C.

  • Specific heat of water = 1

  • Latent heat of fusion = 80

  • Latent heat of vaporization = 540

  • Oxygen

  • Light

The Specifics


Why is light important in aquatic systems

  • Light is energy, capable of work and being transformed from one form to another.

  • Radiant energy of light transformed to potential energy by biochemical reactions (e.g., photosynthesis).

  • Light provides the majority of energy input to aquatic systems – but getting light INTO aquatic systems is tough.
