Given the n-vector for position A (`n_EA_E`

) and the position-vector from position
A to position B (`p_AB_E`

), the output is the n-vector of position
B (`n_EB_E`

) and depth of B (`z_EB`

).

`n_EA_E` |
n-vector of position A, decomposed in E (3x1 vector) (no unit) |

`p_AB_E` |
Position vector from A to B, decomposed in E (3x1 vector) (m) |

`z_EA` |
Depth of system A, relative to the ellipsoid (z_EA = -height) (m, default 0) |

`a` |
Semi-major axis of the Earth ellipsoid (m, default [WGS-84] 6378137) |

`f` |
Flattening of the Earth ellipsoid (no unit, default [WGS-84] 1/298.257223563) |

The calculation is exact, taking the ellipticity of the Earth into account.

It is also nonsingular as both n-vector and p-vector are nonsingular (except for the center of the Earth). The default ellipsoid model used is WGS-84, but other ellipsoids (or spheres) might be specified.
