ABSTRACT

Prediction of conductivity and concentration of saline solutions and sea water are  calculated from dielectric spectra at microwave frequencies of 2 GHz and 5 GHz  respectively. The calculation is based on two different previously published empirical  models relating to conductivity and concentration. An empirical relationship is  established and is used to find corrected calculated conductivity and concentration. The  expected results are verified with standard measurement where correlation coefficient  of given is 0.98 and above. The data is useful as tools for quality indication of liquid samples.
