Speed of sound in seawater, using the 75-term equation for specific volume.
gsw_sound_speed(SA, CT, p)
Absolute Salinity [ g/kg ]
Conservative Temperature [ degC ]
sea pressure [dbar], i.e. absolute pressure [dbar] minus 10.1325 dbar
sound speed [ m/s ]
This R function uses a wrapper to a C function
contained within the GSW-C system as updated 2021-03-27
with git commit 'f7bfebf44f686034636facb09852f1d5760c27f5'.
In turn, that C function uses data from the
file provided in the GSW-Matlab source code, version 3.06-11.
Unfortunately, this version is no longer displayed on the
TEOS-10.org website. Therefore, in the interests of making
GSW-R be self-contained, a copy was downloaded from
on 2021-0706, the .mat file was stored in
the developer/create_data directory of
https://github.com/TEOS-10/GSW-R, and then the dataset
used in GSW-R was created based on that .mat file.
Please consult http://www.teos-10.org to learn more about
the various TEOS-10 software systems.
