Arguments

x

A ctd object, i.e. one inheriting from ctd-class.

inSitu

A boolean indicating whether to use in-situ temperature or (the default) potential temperature, calculated with reference pressure given by referencePressure. This is ignored if eos="gsw", because those cases the y axis is necessarily the conservative formulation of temperature.

type

representation of data, "p" for points, "l" for connecting lines, or "n" for no indication.

referencePressure

reference pressure, to be used in calculating potential temperature, if inSitu is FALSE.

nlevels

Number of automatically-selected isopycnal levels (ignored if levels is supplied).

levels

Optional vector of desired isopycnal levels.

grid

a flag that can be set to TRUE to get a grid.

col.grid

colour for grid.

lty.grid

line type for grid.

rho1000

if TRUE, label isopycnals as e.g. 1024; if FALSE, label as e.g. 24

eos

equation of state to be used, either "unesco" or "gsw".

cex

character-expansion factor for symbols, as in par("cex").

col

colour for symbols.

pch

symbol type, as in par("pch").

bg

optional colour to be painted under plotting area, before plotting. (This is useful for cases in which inset=TRUE.)

pt.bg

inside colour for symbols with pch in 21:25

col.rho

colour for isopycnal lines.

cex.rho

size of isopycnal labels.

rotate

if TRUE, labels in right-hand margin are written vertically

useSmoothScatter

if TRUE, use smoothScatter to plot the points.

xlab

optional label for the x axis, with default "Salinity [PSU]".

ylab

optional label for the y axis, with default "Temperature [C]".

Slim

optional limits for salinity axis, otherwise inferred from data.

Tlim

optional limits for temperature axis, otherwise inferred from data.

mgp

3-element numerical vector to use for par(mgp), and also for par(mar), computed from this. The default is tighter than the R default, in order to use more space for the data and less for the axes.

mar

value to be used with par("mar"). If set to NULL, then par("mar") is used. A good choice for a TS diagram with a palette to the right is mar=par("mar")+c(0, 0, 0, 1)).

lwd

line width of lines or symbols.

lty

line type of lines or symbols.

lwd.rho

line width for density curves.

lty.rho

line type for density curves.

add

a flag that controls whether to add to an existing plot. (It makes sense to use add=TRUE in the panel argument of a coplot, for example.)

inset

set to TRUE for use within plotInset. The effect is to prevent the present function from adjusting margins, which is necessary because margin adjustment is the basis for the method used by plotInset.

debug

a flag that turns on debugging. Set to 1 to get a moderate amount of debugging information, or to 2 to get more.

...

optional arguments passed to plotting functions.

Value

A list is silently returned, containing xat and yat, values that can be used by oce.grid to add a grid to the plot.
