Compute seawater pressure from depth by inverting swDepth() using uniroot().

swPressure(depth, latitude = 45, eos = getOption("oceEOS", default = "gsw"))

Arguments

depth

distance below the surface in metres.

latitude

Latitude in \(^\circ\)N or radians north of the equator.

eos

indication of formulation to be used, either "unesco" or "gsw".

Value

Pressure in dbar.

Details

If eos="unesco" this is done by numerical inversion of swDepth() is done using uniroot(). If eos="gsw", it is done using gsw::gsw_p_from_z() in the gsw package.
