Abstract
    Tables for obtaining values of fundamental properties of seawater based on the Practical Salinity Scale (PSS-78) and the International Equation of State for Seawater (EOS-80), are compiled in this report.The calculations presented in the tables are produced using standardized computer programs described in the Unesco Technical Papers in Marine Science No. 40. The tables cover the following: Density anomaly and specific volume anomaly at atmospheric pressure together with high pressure corrections to the latter; thermal expansion coefficient, salinity contraction coefficient, isothermal compressibility coefficient, isopycnal derivative, specific heat of seawater, adiabatic laps rate at atmospheric and elevated pressure; potential temperature with corrections, freezing point, speed of sound, pressure to depth conversion, and tables to create lines of constant density and specific volume anomaly for T-S diagrams. An alternate definition of specific volume anomaly used primarily in Soviet literature also appears.
