Increased irrigation water salinity
linearly reduced shoot length (Figure 1A), total length (Figure 1B) and stem diameter (Figure 1E) in pomegranate seedlings, causing decreases of 25.73, 20 and 23.24%, respectively, in plants irrigated using water with the highest EC level (12.0 dS [m.sup.-1]), compared to those irrigated with supply water (EC 0.6 dS [m.sup.-1]).
(2012b), when studying the effect of the irrigation water salinity
over the indices of growth analysis in winged-stem passion flower (Passiflora alata) in soil with biofertilizer at 60 DAE.
Results further revealed that the amount of proline was increased with increasing water salinity
. Averaged overall salinity levels, SDPAK 03/06 had more proline, followed by SDPAK 01/07, SDPAK 09/07 and SD-12970, whereas; lower content of proline was observed in SDPAK07/07, Magnolia and Mirabella genotypes.
In soils frequently irrigated with saline irrigation water, initial soil salinity may be considerable and even greater than irrigation water salinity
. In such conditions, E[C.sub.0] can be calculated using the mass conservation principle (the derivation is given in Appendix 1):

Drinking water salinity
and raised blood pressure: evidence from a cohort study in coastal Bangladesh.
However, Q7 plants showed higher absorption of K+ as compared to Q9 and maximum absorption of Q7 plants was recorded at 60% sea water salinity
. Similar linear increase in SA was also recorded in Q9 plants as well.
It is hypothesized that regular monitoring of soil and water salinity
levels will be of significant help in the protection of crops, fisheries, and livestock along the coastal belt of Bangladesh.
The time, weather condition, and environmental parameters of the site collection (e.g., water salinity
, temperature, and dissolved oxygen) were recorded prior to sampling.
Due to the built in conductivity sensor, the AquaPlus is able to calculate and automatically compensate DO readings for changes in water salinity
The fat snook, Centropomus parallelus Poey, 1860 is widely distributed along the central South Atlantic coast and exhibits significant potential for aquaculture because it adapts well to captivity and is resistant to cage and pond rearing systems and variations in water salinity
. It also has high market value because of the quality of its meat (Tsuzuki et al., 2007; Cerqueira, 2010).
In the dissertation for his doctorate degree at the University of Amsterdam in 2015, Delsman identifies the processes and physiographic factors controlling the spatial variability and temporal dynamics of the exfiltration of saline groundwater to surface water and hence the contribution of saline groundwater to surface water salinity
. His research focuses on the coastal zone of the Netherlands, where the exfiltration of saline water is a common occurrence and presents immediate and future problems for regional freshwater availability.
