This document outlines how the thermodynamic properties of seawater are evaluated using the International Thermodynamic Equation Of Seawater – 2010 (TEOS-‐‑10). This thermodynamic description of seawater is based on a Gibbs function formulation from which thermodynamic properties such as entropy, specific volume , enthalpy and potential enthalpy are calculated directly. When determined from the Gibbs function, these quantities are fully consiste nt with each other . Entropy and enthalpy are required for an accurate description of the advection and diffusion of heat in the ocean interior and for quantifying the ocean’s role in exchanging heat with the atmosphere and with ice. The Gibbs function is a function of Absolute Salinity, temperature and pressure. In contrast to Practical Salinity, Ab.....
