> Sea Water Salinity was used to be measured in g/kg, with values sometime written with
the "‰" symbol (e.g. "35‰"). In modern oceanography, this has been replaced by _Practical
Salinity Unit_ (PSU), with values written without symbol (e.g. "35"). Strictly speaking, PSU
units are not convertible to g/kg. However the PSU scale is by design very close to the old
scale. If someone nevertheless attempts a conversion between those two scales, we want it
to be close to the identity operation. Currently, the conversion wrongly multiply or divide
values by 1000.
