    The explanation for this mystery is salty water cycle on the planet, which we explained in detail in the infographic below. Before that, it is worth remembering that the sodium chloride - the chemical name of the popular table salt - is not the only substance dissolved in the oceans. In seawater there magnesium chloride, calcium bicarbonate, magnesium sulfate, calcium sulfate and potassium chloride, among others. The salty taste of sodium chloride predominating over because the substance is by far much more abundant than the others.
