Tools for Aquatic Sciences.

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/marelac

Datasets, constants, conversion factors, and 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.
