About Gabriel


Bøyen Gabriel is a measuring station in "Store Lungegårdsvann" next to Amalie Skram VGS in Bergen. It measures water properties down the water column every three hours, throughout the year.In addition, a weather station is mounted on the top of the bend.Measurement data will be linked. For mathematics and physics in upper secondary schools so that one can use math and physics and statistics to learn more about how things in our real world are connected.

  • Salt in dry form is a chemical compound consisting of several crystallized ions.
  • Salt comes in different forms and often occurs through chemical reactions.
  • The word salt is often synonymous with ione compound. Salt is often dissolved easily in water. The sea is naturally salty, with about 3.5% salt.
  • In oceanography there is a tradition of expressing salinity not as a percentage, but in thousands of sums it is about the same as grams of salt per liter of seawater. The unit "psu" (practical salinity unit) is also used. Common salinity values for seawater and seawater are 34-36.
  • The salinity together with the temperature determines the density of seawater.
  • The salinity of seawater is measured through conductivity.
    Conductivity is a property a substance has to conduct power.
    By measuring the conductivity through the water, it is calculated how much salt is in the water.
