Pressure to depth (empirical formula - sea water)


In sea water, there is an approximate numerical equivalence between the change in pressure in decibars and the change in depth from the surface in meters. An empirical formula that takes pressure into account as well as gravity as a function of Latitude and pressure. This version takes no account of the geopotential anomaly which is equal to D/9.8 J/kg.
