Water Properties Calculator

* Special thanks to the SEAWATER LAB team at MIT.
* Special thanks to Boomer from www.reefcentral.com for his help.

This calculator estimates various properties of surface seawater at a given salinity and temperature, assuming that pressure is held constant at 0.1 MPa (1 atm). The code is based on MATLAB algorithms released in the The Seawater Thermophysical Properties Library[1]
