Returns the atmospheric pressure and density at the current vessel position.

void oapiGetAtmPressureDensity (
                               OBJHANDLE hVessel,
                               double *pressure
                               double *density)

Parameters

hVessel
vessel handle
pressure
pointer to the variable receiving pressure value (Pa)
density
pointer to the variable receiving density value (kg/m^3)

Notes

Pressure and density are calculated using an exponential barometric equation, without accounting for local variations.
