TEOS-10 EXCEL (v2.1) Carlos Gil Martins

Short summary
Current oceanographic standards require the use of the TEOS-10 GSW toolbox for the estimation of Absolute Salinity and of other seawater properties (e.g. density, sound speed). This requires a working understanding of high-level programming languages and thus may not be readily accessible to all practitioners. This paper presents an Excel implementation of TEOS-10, thus allowing the estimation of a relevant set of seawater parameters within a well-known and friendly environment.
