Calculation of sea water properties

Calculate the density of sea water using the UNESCO (1983) formula and the velocity of sound in sea water using the formula from Anderson (1971). Enter:

Parameter Unit Range
Temperature C 0-40
Salinity PSU (ppt) 0.5-43
Pressure atm (1 atm at surface) 0-1200
Density kg/m^3

Salinity : [PSU]

Temperature: [C]

Pressure : [atm]

Density : [kg/m^3]

Vecocity of sound: [m/s]
