Approximations de quelques calculs astronomiques relatifs aux calendriers terrestres.
Sea water properties as a function of salinity, temperature and pressure.
Computes Sun apparent position relative to an observer on Earth.
Package org.geotoolkit.nature Description
Algorithms related to the observations of natural phenomenons. Most algorithms in this package are
derived from empirical measurements; their results are approximative
. Algorithms include:
- Sea water properties (density, sound velocity, fusion temperature,
etc.) computed from salinity, temperature and pression
using algorithms published by UNESCO.
- Values relative to earth calendar, like tropical year length.

Tropical year length is computed
using formula by Laskar (1986). Synodic month length is
computed using formula by Chapront-Touze and Chapront (1988).
Those formulas was taken from the following adress:
