Description

Compute height above the surface. This is the negative of depth, and so is defined simply in terms of swDepth.

Usage

1
swZ(pressure, latitude = 45, eos = getOption("oceEOS", default = "gsw"))

Arguments

pressure

either pressure [dbar], in which case lat must also be given, or a ctd object, in which case lat will be inferred from the object.

latitude

Latitude in degN or radians north of the equator.

eos

indication of formulation to be used, either "unesco" or "gsw".
