# gsw_specvol_first_derivatives_wrt_enthalpy

partial derivatives of specific volume with respect to enthalpy (75-term equation)

## Contents

## USAGE:

[v_SA_wrt_h, v_h] = gsw_specvol_first_derivatives_wrt_enthalpy(SA,CT,p)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the following two first-order derivatives of specific volume (v), (1) v_SA_wrt_h, first-order derivative with respect to Absolute Salinity at constant h & p. (2) v_h, first-order derivative with respect to h at constant SA & p.

This function uses the computationally-efficient 75-term expression for specific volume in terms of SA, CT and p (Roquet et al., 2015).

Note that the 75-term equation has been fitted in a restricted range of parameter space, and is most accurate inside the "oceanographic funnel" described in McDougall et al. (2003). The GSW library function "gsw_infunnel(SA,CT,p)" is avaialble to be used if one wants to test if some of one's data lies outside this "funnel".

## 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:

v_SA_wrt_h = The first derivative of specific volume with respect to Absolute Salinity at constant CT & p. [ (m^3/kg)(g/kg)^-1 (J/kg)^-1 ] v_h = The first derivative of specific volume with respect to SA and CT at constant p. [ (m^3/kg)(J/kg)^-1 ]

## 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;]

[v_SA_wrt_h, v_h] = gsw_specvol_first_derivatives_wrt_enthalpy(SA,CT,p)
