Abstract : An instrwtient has been developed for determining salinity structure in a small scale oceanographic model of Puget Sound. Variations in electrical conductivity with depth at any point in the model are measured with a small probing conductivity cell0 The conductivity-depth diagram is traced by an oscilloscope and photographed. Response to changes in conductivity is of the order of 0.01 second. The present accuracy of measurement is about 1%. With suitable modifications the instrument may be adapted to almost any scale model. Adaption to use for rapid salinity determination of sea water samples where titration accuracy is not required has been suggested.
