Close! You got the classes of estuaries correct, however, the four main types of water mixing in estuaries are:
1) Vertically Mixed
2) Slightly Stratified
3) Highly Stratified
4) Salt Wedge

and if you could teach me how to use hide that would be great :)
You can see this post from last year's archives to learn how to use hide.

The proportion of dissolved solids in seawater is to be seen as uniform throughout. (Concentration in one place is relatively the same as in another).
