Pressure to depth (empirical formula - fresh water)

Description

In fresh water, there is an approximate numerical equivalence between the change in pressure in decibars and the change in depth from the surface in meters. Specifically, an increase of 1 decibar occurs for every 1.019716 m increase in depth.
