# gsw_t_from_rho_exact

in-situ temperature from density

## USAGE:

[t, t_multiple] = gsw_t_from_rho_exact(rho,SA,p)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the in-situ temperature of a seawater sample, for given
values of its density, Absolute Salinity and sea pressure (in dbar).

## INPUT:

rho  =  density of a seawater sample (e.g. 1026 kg/m^3)       [ kg/m^3 ]
Note. This input has not had 1000 kg/m^3 subtracted from it.
That is, it is 'density', not 'density anomaly'.
SA  =  Absolute Salinity                                        [ g/kg ]
p   =  sea pressure                                             [ dbar ]
( i.e. absolute pressure - 10.1325 dbar )
rho & SA need to have the same dimensions.
p may have dimensions 1x1 or Mx1 or 1xN or MxN, where rho & SA are MxN.

## OUTPUT:

t   =  in-situ temperature (ITS-90)                            [ deg C ]
t_multiple  =  in-situ temperature (ITS-90)                    [ deg C ]
Note that at low salinities, in brackish water, there are two possible
temperatures for a single density.  This programme will output both
valid solutions.  To see this second solution the user must call the
programme with two outputs (i.e. [t, t_multiple]), if there is only
one possible solution and the programme has been called with two
outputs the second variable will be set to NaN.

## EXAMPLE:

rho = [1021.8484; 1022.2647; 1024.4207; 1027.7841; 1029.8287; 1031.9916;]
SA = [34.7118; 34.8915; 35.0256; 34.8472; 34.7366; 34.7324;]
p =  [     10;      50;     125;     250;     600;    1000;]
[t, t_multiple] = gsw_t_from_rho_exact(rho,SA,p)
t =
28.760866806849798
28.426820412666761
