- Two types of saline water exist on Earth, namely marine waters, including brackish zones of mixing with fresh water, and epicontinental salt lakes. This chapter addresses the values, threats and likely future of salt lakes, which are here defined as permanent or temporary bodies of water with salinities >3 g per litre and lacking any recent connection to the marine environment (i.e. athalassohaline sensu Bayly 1967).
