Anyone have any idea what mathematical formulas we should know for the States/Nationals level?

I have: 1) Wave Speed = sqrt(g*d)

2) S=1.80655Cl (chlorinity to salinity formula)

These are the only two I have seen on practice tests.

Thanks!

Wave speed is actually S=L(wavelength)/T(time)

The formula for wave speed there is only used for tsunamis as other waves are not caused by a disruption. You may have know this already, but I just wanted to clarify since you did not specify. Last year's test had many more mathematical elements than any of my other tests as well as more about oceanographic tools. I'm sure there was more to it than that, but I can't really remember at this moment. (also there were actual stations)
