gsw_CT_second_derivatives

second derivatives of Conservative Temperature

Contents

USAGE:

[CT_SA_SA, CT_SA_pt, CT_pt_pt] = gsw_CT_second_derivatives(SA,pt)

DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the following three, second-order derivatives of Conservative
Temperature
 (1) CT_SA_SA, the second derivative with respect to Absolute Salinity
     at constant potential temperature (with pr = 0 dbar),
 (2) CT_SA_pt, the derivative with respect to potential temperature
    (the regular potential temperature which is referenced to 0 dbar)
     and Absolute Salinity, and
 (3) CT_pt_pt, the second derivative with respect to potential
     temperature (the regular potential temperature which is referenced
     to 0 dbar) at constant Absolute Salinity.

INPUT:

SA  =  Absolute Salinity                                        [ g/kg ]
pt  =  potential temperature (ITS-90)                          [ deg C ]
SA & pt need to have the same dimensions.

OUTPUT:

CT_SA_SA  =  The second derivative of Conservative Temperature with
             respect to Absolute Salinity at constant potential
             temperature (the regular potential temperature which
             has reference sea pressure of 0 dbar).
             The CT_SA_SA output has units of:          [ K/((g/kg)^2) ]
CT_SA_pt  =  The derivative of Conservative Temperature with
             respect to potential temperature (the regular one with
             pr = 0 dbar) and Absolute Salinity.
             CT_SA_pt has units of:                         [ 1/(g/kg) ]
CT_pt_pt  =  The second derivative of Conservative Temperature with
             respect to potential temperature (the regular one with
             pr = 0 dbar) at constant SA.
             CT_pt_pt has units of:                              [ 1/K ]
