Salting coefficients for gases in seawater from scaled-particle theory

Abstract

Experimental values of the salting coefficients for He, Ne, Ar, O2, and N2 in seawater are compared with values calculated from scaled-particle theory. The agreement is reasonably good; the average difference between calculated and observed values at 25°C is 0.007. Scaled-particle theory predicts correctly thatks should decrease as the temperature increases and that this effect should be most pronounced at low temperatures. However, the predicted magnitude ofdKs/dt is only about half of that observed.
