If the first argument is an
oce object, then values for salinity,
etc., are extracted from it, and used for the calculation, and the
corresponding arguments to the present function are ignored.
The conservative temperature is calculated using the TEOS-10 function
gsw_CT_from_t from the
Conservative temperature in degrees Celcius.

The related TEOS-10 quantity “absolute salinity” may be computed
swAbsoluteSalinity. For a ctd object, conservative
temperature may also be recovered by indexing as e.g.
