Answer:

#"Temperature and salinity."#

Explanation:

This link informs us that #rho_"seawater"=1.027*g*cm^-3#; #rho_"pure water"=1.000*g*cm^-3# (I changed the units so that they would be more accessible to chemists). And of course the density of water is affected by temperature to a lesser degree.
