brackish water  

DEFINITION

  • Brackish water is water that is saltier than fresh water, but not as salty as seawater. It may result from mixing of seawater with fresh water, as in estuaries, but also certain human activities can produce brackish water, in particular certain civil engineering projects such as dikes and the flooding of coastal marshland. (en)
  • Tuzluluk derecesi deniz suyuyla tatlı su arasında olan, toplam çözünmüş tuz içeriği %0,1-3 (1-30 g/L) arasında değişen, nehir ağızları, haliçler gibi tatlı suyun, tuzlu su ile birleştiği yerlerde veya hafif tuzlu fosil suverenlerde rastlanabilen su. (tr)
