|The 'take-off' (find the surfer)|
In a previous post of this series this question was pondered:
"This raises the question, do the 'salinity' elements in seawater emit the infrared photons that melt glacial ice, or do the h2o molecules in seawater do it alone?
These graphs concern different areas of Antarctica's glacial grounding lines (Fig. 1, Antarctica 2.0 - 11).
They indicate 'maybe both' (i.e. both the h2o molecules and the other 'salinity' molecules in seawater may all emit infrared photons which enter the glacial ice's h2o molecules and cause a heat increase until melting takes place..."
(Quantum Oceanography - 10). One reason that the concept of "infrared photons" was featured in that question session is that "ocean heat" means "potential enthalpy" in oceanographic nomenclature (McDougall, 2003).
In general terms seawater is generally about 3.5% "salinity" (Cl−, Na+, SO24−, Mg2+, Ca2+, and K+) and 96.5% water (H2O, ibid).
Little wonder, then, that the patterns which Conservative Temperature (CT), Potential Enthalpy (ho), and photon count (moles) are the same patterns, nor that the Absolute Salinity (SA) pattern does not match them (Patterns: Conservative Temperature & Potential Enthalpy, 2, 3, 4, 5) ... (cf. Appendix SA; Southern, Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, and Four Panes).
The CT, ho, and photon count (moles) patterns are heat-energy oriented, and they match each other in the graphs, while the "salinity" (SA) pattern is based on chemical content and does not match the ocean heat pattern.
Thus, it does not seem unreasonable to associate ocean heat (ho), infrared photon quantity in seawater (moles), and temperature (CT) together.
Likewise, SA and thermosteric volume are not related because the percentage of SA compared to the percentage of h2o in seawater is very different.
