Brydon, D., S. Sun, and R. Bleck, 1999: A new approximation of the equation of state for sea water, suitable for numerical ocean models. J. Geophys. Res., 104, 1537-1540, doi:10.1029/1998JC900059.

An approximation to the UNESCO equation of state for sea water is obtained in the form of a plynomial that is cubic in potential temperature, quadratic in pressure, and linear in salinity. The Polynomial represents a reasonable compromise between accuracy and computational economy; it also allows a potential temperature to be obtained analytically from given values of density, salinity and pressure.
