The same behaviour that shows pH values and chlorinity also indicates that other dissolved elements that have been described, such as [Na.sup.+], [Ca.sup.2+], [K.sup.+], [Mg.sup.2+] and S[O.sub.4.sup.=], are contributed by dissolved salts in marine water.
The definition of these zones depends on the behaviour of pH values and chlorinity concentration of the water, as well as on the heavy metal concentrations in their dissolved and particulate phases.
where a, the mass of the undissolved polymer; b, the original mass of the sample before extraction; M1, the molecular weight of vinyl chloride; M2, the chlorine atomic weight; X, the chlorinity of the undissolved polymer.

A number of natural fluids show an apparent enrichment/depletion in Mg-Ca-Na-K associated to an enrichment/depletion in chlorinity (Cl > 567 mmol/kg and <527 mmol/kg, respectively).
The vent chemistry is controlled by fluid/rock interaction processes during seawater circulation through the oceanic crust as well as by the subsequent processes of phase separation, as indicated by a wide range of fluid chlorinity. Only a small number of natural vent fluids have preserved their original fluid/rock interaction compositions without undergoing subsequent fluid phase separation.
