## USAGE:

[pot_enthalpy_ice_freezing_SA, pot_enthalpy_ice_freezing_P] = ...
gsw_pot_enthalpy_ice_freezing_first_derivatives_poly(SA,p)

## DESCRIPTION:

Calculates the first derivatives of the potential enthalpy of ice Ih at
which ice melts into seawater with Absolute Salinity SA and at pressure
p. This code uses the comptationally efficient polynomial fit of the
freezing potential enthalpy of ice Ih (McDougall et al., 2015).

## INPUT:

SA = Absolute Salinity [ g/kg ]
p = sea pressure [ dbar ]
( i.e. absolute pressure - 10.1325 dbar )

p may have dimensions 1x1 or Mx1 or 1xN or MxN, where SA is MxN.

## OUTPUT:

_pot_enthalpy_ice_freezing_SA = the derivative of the potential enthalpy
of ice at freezing (ITS-90) with respect to Absolute
salinity at fixed pressure [ (J/kg)/(g/kg) ] i.e. [ J/g ]
pot_enthalpy_ice_freezing_P = the derivative of the potential enthalpy
of ice at freezing (ITS-90) with respect to pressure
(in Pa) at fixed Absolute Salinity [ (J/kg)/Pa ]

## EXAMPLE:

SA = [34.7118; 34.8915; 35.0256; 34.8472; 34.7366; 34.7324;]
p = [ 10; 50; 125; 250; 600; 1000;]
