# gsw_CT_second_derivatives

second derivatives of Conservative Temperature

## Contents

## USAGE:

[CT_SA_SA, CT_SA_pt, CT_pt_pt] = gsw_CT_second_derivatives(SA,pt)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the following three, second-order derivatives of Conservative Temperature (1) CT_SA_SA, the second derivative with respect to Absolute Salinity at constant potential temperature (with pr = 0 dbar), (2) CT_SA_pt, the derivative with respect to potential temperature (the regular potential temperature which is referenced to 0 dbar) and Absolute Salinity, and (3) CT_pt_pt, the second derivative with respect to potential temperature (the regular potential temperature which is referenced to 0 dbar) at constant Absolute Salinity.

## INPUT:

SA = Absolute Salinity [ g/kg ] pt = potential temperature (ITS-90) [ deg C ]

SA & pt need to have the same dimensions.

## OUTPUT:

CT_SA_SA = The second derivative of Conservative Temperature with respect to Absolute Salinity at constant potential temperature (the regular potential temperature which has reference sea pressure of 0 dbar). The CT_SA_SA output has units of: [ K/((g/kg)^2) ] CT_SA_pt = The derivative of Conservative Temperature with respect to potential temperature (the regular one with pr = 0 dbar) and Absolute Salinity. CT_SA_pt has units of: [ 1/(g/kg) ] CT_pt_pt = The second derivative of Conservative Temperature with respect to potential temperature (the regular one with pr = 0 dbar) at constant SA. CT_pt_pt has units of: [ 1/K ]

## EXAMPLE:

SA = [34.7118; 34.8915; 35.0256; 34.8472; 34.7366; 34.7324;] pt = [28.7832; 28.4209; 22.7850; 10.2305; 6.8292; 4.3245;]

[CT_SA_SA, CT_SA_pt, CT_pt_pt] = gsw_CT_second_derivatives(SA,pt)
