Maybe there presence is insignificant compared to KCl? I was also wonder how similar the ratio was between KCl and NaCl?
Its a very interesting subject that seems to be misunderstood by a lot of people as far as I can tell in my limited search for information.
Ben, sorry I only come around once a year or so. Check out "The Development of the Chlorinity/Salinity Concept in Oceanography" By William J. Wallace, look for excerpts in Google and start at page 161.
