1. the sea or its water
2. Chem
a. a concentrated solution of sodium chloride in water
b. any solution of a salt in water

Brine

 

(1) Highly mineralized natural waters in lagoons, salt lakes, reservoirs, and subterranean waters.

(2) Aqueous sodium chloride solutions used in food preserving.

(3) Aqueous solutions of various salts, for example, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride, that have low freezing points. These solutions act as cold conductors between refrigerators and objects being chilled.

(4) Mixtures composed of two or more solid (or solid and liquid) substances that bring about a decrease in temperature when mixed; this decrease is the result of heat absorption upon melting or dissolving.


Brine

 

the water in lagoons, salt lakes, and reservoirs that is in the form of a saturated solution. The brine found in lakes is grouped according to its chemical composition into carbonate brine, sulfate brine, and chloride brine. The concentration and composition of brines vary, depending on the hydrometeorological conditions during different seasons of the year and over the course of many years. Different chemical processes are constantly taking place in brine and result in a change in its salt composition. Brine is used for baths at pelotherapy resorts either as an independent treatment or together with pelotherapy.

brine

[brīn]
(materials)
A liquid used in a refrigeration system, usually an aqueous solution of calcium chloride or sodium chloride, which is cooled by contact with the evaporator surface and then goes to the space to be refrigerated.
(oceanography)
Sea water containing a higher concentration of dissolved salt than that of the ordinary ocean.

brine

In a refrigeration system, any liquid used as a heat transfer medium which remains as a liquid and which has either a flashpoint above 150°F (66°C) or no flashpoint; usually a water solution of inorganic salts.

The results of this study indicate that PCB occurs frequently: About 42% of the participants experienced an overall PCB and 95% of the employees reported PCB at least once among the specific expectations, which supports the notions from previous research that PCB is the norm rather than an exception (Conway & Briner, 2002a; Coyle-Shapiro & Kessler, 2000; Morrison & Robinson, 1997; Rousseau & Greller, 1994; Turnley & Feldman, 1999).
These findings also corroborate the results of previous studies (Cassar & Briner, 2011; Simosi, 2013).
Managerial actions and decisions influence and shape psychological contracts both explicitly and implicitly (Conway and Briner, 2005).
Although we know a great deal about the effects of contract breach on employees' attitudes, we know little about its effect on an employee's perception of the psychological contract itself (Conway and Briner, 2005).

Por exemplo, Yearta, Maitlis e Briner (1995) pesquisaram a relacao existente entre as metas definidas por meio de um processo participativo e o desempenho organizacional e a relacao entre as metas dificeis, ou desafiadoras, e esse mesmo desempenho.
Following its reappearance in the mainstream management literature in the 1990s, the basis and scope of the psychological contract was the subject of considerable debate (Conway and Briner 2005: 20-36).
Writing in the Foreword, the President of the CAS AHD, Dr Robert Briner, had this to say:
Recent work on stress, spawned largely by theoretical developments (Lazarus, 1999) is looking at the role played by emotion in stress and its appraisal (Dormann & Zapf, 2002; Harris, Daniels, & Briner 2003).
Briner prepared a standard laboratory report documenting these results and gave the report to the prosecution for use during trial.
Johnson said the co-op reached a milestone early in the 2000s when, for the first time, it bought briner cherries from outside the company.
