ABSTRACT
The article reports that doctor Trevor McDougall of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) has led an international science team in defining seawater properties for climate research. It notes that the insufficient theoretical understanding of enthalpy in seawater has resulted in approximate management of the oceanic role in the climate system. It mentions that a more accurate calculation of salinity will be provided by the definition of seawater.
