1939 Volume 14 Issue 3 Pages 58-62


(1) The freezing point of sea water from the Western Pacific Ocean has been measured and a new empirical formula for the relation between freezing point and chlorinity has been obtained, which seems to be more adequate than Knudsen-Hansen’s equation.
(2) The osmotic pressure, the boiling point elevation and the depression of the vapour pressure of sea water have been calculated.
The author wishes to express his hearty thanks to Prof. T. Okada, Director of the Central Meteorological Observatory of Japan, for his kind guidance and the permission of publishing this report. He is also indebted to Mr. H. Matui for his earnest assistance throughout this work.
