Practical Salinity Units (PSU)

Science / Marine Biology / Practical Salinity Units (PSU): A measure of the salt content of seawater (practical salinity), based upon electrical conductivity of a sample relative to a reference standard of sea water, which now happens to be a reference set of diluted sea water samples from the North Atlantic of known salt content. See PPT.
