The article explains the salinity of ocean water through Proven information and graphs. "Dissolved ions reach the Ocean through sources such as rivers, volcanism, and hydrothermal vents."( C. Reid Nichols; Robert G. Williams) Nichols And Williams, C. Reid and Robert. “Ocean Salinity.” Infobase Learning - Login, 2017, online.infobase.com/HRC/Search/Details/8?articleId=274104&q=ocean%2Bsalinity.
This article explains how salt doesn't only come from eroded rocks but from what was recently discovered as Hydrothermal vents found on the crest of oceanic ridges (The University of Texas at Dallas) Perlman, Howard, and The University of Texas at Dallas USGS. “Why Is the Ocean Salty?” Livestock Water Use, the USGS Water Science School, 2 Dec. 2016, water.usgs.gov/edu/whyoceansalty.html.
This article explains the different ions found in water and how they contribute to the salinity of the ocean. "The six most abundant ions of seawater are chloride (Cl−), sodium (Na+), sulfate (SO24−), magnesium (Mg2+), calcium (Ca2+), and potassium (K+). " (Alyn C. Duxbury,Fred T. Mackenzie, and Robert Howard Byrne.)Duxbury Mackenzie and Byrne, Alyn, fred and Robert. “Log In.” Britannica School, 2017, school.eb.com/levels/high/article/seawater/66497.
The article explains that salts and dissolved ions found in ocean water come from some of the rocks on land as well as how rain erodes the rocks and moves the eroded particles to the ocean giving it a salty composition. NOAA states "as the rain erodes the rock, acids in the rainwater break the rocks down.... Ions broken down are taken in runoff to streams and rivers later to the ocean." In saying this NOAA shows how salt is transported into the ocean as well as some of the contents found in the ocean after eroded rocks are transported into it.
