gsw_t_freezing: Freezing Temperature of Seawater

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

View source: R/gsw.R

Description

This uses the C function named gsw_t_freezing_exact, because the C function named gsw_t_freezing does not produce check values that match the Matlab function called gsw_t_freezing (see references for those test values).

Usage

1
gsw_t_freezing(SA, p, saturation_fraction = 1)

Arguments

SA

Absolute Salinity [ g/kg ]

p

sea pressure [dbar], i.e. absolute pressure [dbar] minus 10.1325 dbar

saturation_fraction

fraction of air in water [unitless]

Details

The present R function works with a wrapper to a C function contained within the GSW-C system (Version 3.05-4 dated 2017-08-07, available at https://github.com/TEOS-10/GSW-C, as git commit '5b4d959e54031f9e972f3e863f63e67fa4f5bfec'), which stems from the GSW-Fortran system (https://github.com/TEOS-10/GSW-Fortran) which in turn stems from the GSW-Matlab system (https://github.com/TEOS-10/GSW-Matlab).

Value

in-situ freezing temperature (ITS-90) [ degC ]
