  1. To create the seawater-like solution, we mixed 1000 g of water with 35 g of this stoichiometry. To create the fresh water solution, we mixed 1000 g of water with 0.035 g of this stoichiometry, and 3°10−5 mol of CO2. 1°10−6 mol of O2 was added in order to insure stability within phase calculations
