marelac: Tools for Aquatic Sciences
Datasets, constants, conversion factors, utilities for
MArine, Riverine, Estuarine, LAcustrine and Coastal science.
The package contains among others: (1) chemical and physical
constants and datasets, e.g. atomic weights, gas constants, the
earths bathymetry; (2) conversion factors (e.g. gram to mol to
liter, barometric units, temperature, salinity); (3) physical
functions, e.g. to estimate concentrations of conservative
substances, gas transfer and diffusion coefficients, the
Coriolis force and gravity; (4) thermophysical properties of
the seawater, as from the UNESCO polynomial or from the more
recent derivation based on a Gibbs function.
