calcHumidity: Calculating Various Humidity Related Values

Description

This set of functions calculates different humidity related values based on the given entities.

Usage

calcDewp(ta, rh)
calcEnth(ta, rh, pb)
calcHumx(ta, rh)
calcMixR(ta, rh, pb)
calcRH(ta, mr, pb)
calcSVP(ta)
calcVP(ta, mr, pb)

Arguments

ta

a numeric value or vector presenting air temperature in [degree C]

rh

a numeric value or vector presenting relative humidity in [%]

mr

a numeric value or vector presenting the mixIng ratio in [g/kg]

pb

a numeric value or vector presenting barometric pressure in [torr]

Value

calcDewp returns the dew point temperature in [degree C]

calcEnth returns a single value or a vector of values of enthalpy in [J]

calcHumx returns a single value or a vector of values of the humidex of air [ ]

calcMixR returns a single value or a vector of mixIng ratio in [g/kg]

calcRH returns a single value or a vector of relative humidities in [%]

calcSVP returns a single value or a vector of saturation vapor pressure in [kpa]

calcVP returns a single value or a vector of vapor pressure in [kpa]

Details

The length of the arguments must be either the same or they must have the length one and one common second length.
