# gsw_rho_first_derivatives_CT_exact

`SA, CT and p partial derivatives of density`

## USAGE:

`[rho_SA, rho_CT, drho_P] = gsw_rho_first_derivatives_CT_exact(SA,CT,p)`

## DESCRIPTION:

```Calculates the three (3) partial derivatives of in situ density with
respect to Absolute Salinity, Conservative Temperature and pressure.
Note that the pressure derivative is done with respect to pressure in
Pa, not dbar.```
```Note that this function uses the full Gibbs function.  There is an
alternative to calling this function, namely
gsw_rho_first_derivatives(SA,CT,p), which uses the computationally
efficient 75-term expression for specific volume in terms of SA, CT
and p (Roquet et al., 2015).```
 ```Click for a more detailed description of three (3) partial derivatives of in situ density with respect to Absolute Salinity, Conservative Temperature and pressure.```

## INPUT:

```SA  =  Absolute Salinity                                        [ g/kg ]
CT  =  Conservative Temperature                                [ deg C ]
p   =  sea pressure                                             [ dbar ]
(ie. absolute pressure - 10.1325 dbar)```
```SA & CT need to have the same dimensions.
p may have dimensions 1x1 or Mx1 or 1xN or MxN, where SA & CT are MxN.```

## OUTPUT:

```rho_SA  =  partial derivatives of density with respect to
Absolute Salinity                  [ (kg/m^3)(g/kg)^-1 ]
rho_CT  =  partial derivatives of density with respect to
Conservative Temperature                  [ kg/(m^3 K) ]
rho_P   =  partial derivatives of density with respect to
pressure in Pa                           [ kg/(m^3 Pa) ]```

## 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;]
p =  [     10;      50;     125;     250;     600;    1000;]```
