# gsw_beta_const_CT_t_exact

```saline contraction coefficient at constant
Conservative Temperature.```

## USAGE:

`beta_const_CT_t_exact = gsw_beta_const_CT_t_exact(SA,t,p)`

## DESCRIPTION:

```Calculates the saline (i. e. haline) contraction coefficient of seawater
at constant Conservative Temperature.``` ```Click for a more detailed description of the saline contraction coefficient at constant Conservative Temperature.```

## INPUT:

```SA  =   Absolute Salinity                                       [ g/kg ]
t   =   in-situ temperature (ITS-90)                           [ deg C ]
p   =   sea pressure                                            [ dbar ]
(ie. absolute pressure - 10.1325 dbar)```
```SA & t need to have the same dimensions.
p may have dimensions 1x1 or Mx1 or 1xN or MxN, where SA & t are MxN.```

## OUTPUT:

```beta_const_CT_t_exact  =  saline contraction coefficient                [ kg/g ]
at constant Conservative Temperature```

## EXAMPLE:

```SA = [34.7118; 34.8915; 35.0256; 34.8472; 34.7366; 34.7324;]
t =  [28.7856; 28.4329; 22.8103; 10.2600;  6.8863;  4.4036;]
p =  [     10;      50;     125;     250;     600;    1000;]```
`beta_const_CT_t_exact = gsw_beta_const_CT_t_exact(SA,t,p)`
`beta_const_CT_t_exact =`
