## USAGE:

[eta_SA_SA, eta_SA_CT, eta_CT_CT] = gsw_entropy_second_derivatives(SA,CT)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the following three second-order partial derivatives of
specific entropy (eta)
(1) eta_SA_SA, the second derivative with respect to Absolute
Salinity at constant Conservative Temperature, and
(2) eta_SA_CT, the derivative with respect to Absolute Salinity and
Conservative Temperature.
(3) eta_CT_CT, the second derivative with respect to Conservative
Temperature at constant Absolute Salinity.

## INPUT:

SA = Absolute Salinity [ g/kg ]
CT = Conservative Temperature [ deg C ]

SA & CT need to have the same dimensions.

## OUTPUT:

eta_SA_SA = The second derivative of specific entropy with respect
to Absolute Salinity (in units of g/kg) at constant
Conservative Temperature. eta_SA_SA has units of:
[ J/(kg K(g/kg)^2)]
eta_SA_CT = The second derivative of specific entropy with respect
to Conservative Temperature at constant Absolute
Salinity. eta_SA_CT has units of: [ J/(kg (g/kg) K^2) ]

eta_CT_CT = The second derivative of specific entropy with respect
to Conservative Temperature at constant Absolute
Salinity. eta_CT_CT has units of: [ J/(kg K^3) ]

## EXAMPLE:

SA = [34.7118; 34.8915; 35.0256; 34.8472; 34.7366; 34.7324;]
CT = [28.8099; 28.4392; 22.7862; 10.2262; 6.8272; 4.3236;]
