The determination of salinity values from SI traceable densimetry and refractometry measurement results enable SI traceability of the former. In this work, a short study of the metrological compatibility of salinity determinations via these two methods for sodium chloride in ultrapure water solutions and two different standard seawaters (OSIL and ERM) solutions, in the [35.0; 215.0] g kg−1 interval, is presented. It evidenced the metrological compatibility of the salinity determinations in the referred interval. The largest salinity values enabled to test the matrix effect upon the determinations and concluded the preferable use of densimetry technique, when occurring.
Key words: Absolute salinity / densimetry / refractometry / metrological compatibility
