## Function Documentation

 double G_area_for_zone_on_ellipsoid ( double north, double south )

Calculates area between latitudes.

This routine shows how to calculate area between two lats, but isn't efficient for row by row since G_darea0_on_ellipsoid() will be called twice for the same lat, once as a south then again as a north.
Returns the area between latitudes north and south scaled by the factor s passed to G_begin_zone_area_on_ellipsoid().

Parameters
 [in] north [in] south
Returns
double

 int G_begin_zone_area_on_ellipsoid ( double a, double e2, double s )

Begin area calculations for ellipsoid.

Initializes raster area calculations for an ellipsoid, where a is the semi-major axis of the ellipse (in meters), e2 is the ellipsoid eccentricity squared, and s is a scale factor to allow for calculations of part of the zone (s=1.0 is full zone, s=0.5 is half the zone, and s=360/ew_res is for a single grid cell).
Note: e2 must be positive. A negative value makes no sense, and zero implies a sphere.

Parameters
 [in] a semi-major axis [in] e2 ellipsoid eccentricity [in] s scale factor
Returns
always returns 0

 double G_darea0_on_ellipsoid ( double lat )

Calculate integral for area between two latitudes.

This routine is part of the integral for the area between two latitudes.

Parameters
 [in] lat
Returns
double
