Abstract
    The Joint Panel on Oceanographic Tables and Standards (JPOTS), appointed jointly by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO), defined practical salinity in 1978 and established Volume 3 of the corresponding International Oceanographic Tables. In 1980, the Joint Panel established the new Equation of State of Seawater and Volume 4 of the corresponding International Oceanographic Tables.Since practical salinity was defined up to 42 only, new measures of electrical conductivity and density were carried out on standard seawater concentrated up to a salinity of 50.The tables presented in this report were established with the help of equations calculated on the basis of these measures; they allow the calculation of salinity on the one hand, and of density anomaly of seawater on the other, for salinity between 42 and 50, and temperatures from 15 to 30°C.
