Salinity Determination Using NIRA

Volume 39, Number 4 (Aug. 1985) Page 740-741

Hirschfeld, T.

The determination of salinity via NIRA is attractive for two reasons. On one hand, NIRA's stark simplicity (little or no sample preparation, 20 s analysis time) makes it a desirable technique for salinity determination in foodstuffs, forage, or biological samples. On the other hand, the technique's compatibility with remote measurements from airplanes or the earth's orbit suggests a number of ecological, oceanographic, or naval applications.
