Description

Values for atmospheric pressure as a function of altitude.

Usage

1
estP(elev, control = list(Tko = 20))

Arguments

elev

elevation [m]

control

list for control parameters and empirical factors defined in controlDefaults and constDefaults (see Details)

Details

Control variables:

Tko: reference temperature [degreeC] at elevation z0. Often assumed to be 20 degreeC

z0: elevation at reference level [m]

a1: constant lapse rate moist air (0.0065 [K/m])

g: gravitational acceleration (9.807 [m/s2])

R: specific gas constant (287 [J/(kg K)])

Value

atmospheric pressure [kPa]
