Default Ocean Fact

Why is water saltier at the poles?

The polar waters are the saltiest in the world. Desite the openness of the ice structure, most impurities (salt) will not fit between its molecular structure. Thus, when water freezes, the salt "falls out" of the water, leaving saltier water behind and the fresh water to freeze in polar sheets.

That is why they want you to use salt in the ice cream makers! Sorry in this heat here in Houston home made ice cream has been coming to mind more and more often. Debbie
