## USAGE:

dynamic_enthalpy = gsw_dynamic_enthalpy(SA,CT,p)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates dynamic enthalpy of seawater using the computationally-
efficient 75-term expression for specific volume in terms of SA, CT and p
(Roquet et al.,2015). Dynamic enthalpy is defined as enthalpy minus
potential enthalpy (Young, 2010).

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 ]
( i.e. 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:

dynamic_enthalpy = dynamic enthalpy [ J/kg ]

## 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;]

dynamic_enthalpy = gsw_dynamic_enthalpy(SA,CT,p)

dynamic_enthalpy =
