Equation intercepts and coefficients were not reported for regressions with r2 - statistics less than 0.70 or with sample sizes less than five observations. Equations should be applied to salinity values between the respective range minimum and range maximum. If extrapolations are made with values outside this range, caution should be taken when using equations with negative intercepts, because the predicted salinity could be a negative value. All negative results should be considered zero.
