# gsw_specvol_anom_standard

`specific volume anomaly (75-term equation)`

## USAGE:

`specvol_anom = gsw_specvol_anom_standard(SA,CT,p)`

## DESCRIPTION:

```Calculates standard specific volume anomaly from Absolute Salinity,
Conservative Temperature and pressure.  It uses the computationally
efficient 75-term expression for specific volume in terms of SA, CT
and p (Roquet et al., 2015).  The reference value of Absolute
Salinity is SSO and the reference value of Conservative Temperature
is equal to 0 degress C.```
```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:

`specvol_anom  =  specific volume anomaly                      [ m^3/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;]```
`specvol_anom = gsw_specvol_anom_standard(SA,CT,p)`
