sound_speed

Sound speed estimate using Coppens equation


v = sound_speed(T,D,S) % Matlab & Octave
v <- sound_speed(T, D, S) # R

Sound speed estimate using Coppens equation. Range of validity: temperature 0 to 35 °C, salinity 0 to 45 parts per thousand, depth 0 to 4000 m

Input var Description Default value
T is the temperature in degrees C Celsius
D is the depth in meters (defaults to 1 m)m
S is the salinity in part-per-thousand (defaults to 35 ppt) ppt
Output var Description Units
v is sound speed in m/s m/s

Matlab & Octave

sound_speed(8,1000,34)
v = 1497.7 % m/s

R

sound_speed(8,1000,34)
v = 1497.7 # m/s
