Every Autosal operator must follow the procedures outlined in the most current version of the Autosal Measurement and Salinity Data Processing Guide (S. Asghar et al., July 2003 update) (Appendix K) for measuring salinity samples.

Some procedures had only been passed on by the word of mouth and had never been documented until now.

The following emphasizes a few key points that every Autosal operator must keep in mind:
