Expert Answer:

Rivers add salts to the oceans in the following ways:

Rock Weathering - The weathering of minerals such as feldspars and clays produces sodium which dissolves in ground water that ends up in rivers.




Chloride Deposits - Mineral deposits containing chloride easily dissolve in run-off water.




Sea Spray - Salt laden sea spray is transported inland where surface run-off from rain washes it into rivers.
