Variable Description

Variable: Sigma-T
Units kg/m^3
Description Sigma T is basically the density of seawater. The density of seawater at atmospheric pressure usually varies between 1025 and 1028 kilograms per cubic meter, and since the variability is so small, oceanographers typically subtract of 1000 to get a value between 25 and 28.
