- Shown here is a rendering of the average annual global salinity at the ocean's surface. This climatology is created by averaging the global ocean salinity over five decades to create a long-term average. Notice how in-land areas have much lower salinity than areas in the middle of the ocean basins, due to freshwater inputs from rivers. On average, the ocean contains around 35 parts of salt per 1,000 parts of water (or 35 grams of salt per 1 liter of water). These values change with temperature, depth, and proximity to land
