    Data Type: SUM
    Action: Website Updated:
    I have reformatted the SUM file extracted from paper text copy submitted to JKappa. Newly reformatted SUM file passes WOCE format checks with no errors. However there is a missmatch between the CTD files submitted by Budeus in 6/00 and the recently reformatted sumfile. Station numbers, lat/lon and dates do not match between files. Doc file indicates that a second leg of this cruise took place in 1995 (dates within CTD files), so perhaps the CTD data is from leg 2 and summary file we currently have covers leg 1. Budeus will need to be contacted again to clarify.
    I have reformatted a summary file extracted from documentation text sent to J. Kappa for 06AQANTXII_1.  
    SUM:    -extracted file was from text and comma separated.
    	-data was converted to column format, headers were corrected where needed
    	-all columns were aligned to WOCE format.
    	-changed expocode from 06AQANTXII/1 to 06AQANTXII_1
    	-added place holding zero to lat/lon where needed. 
    	-corrected year for 3 dates (changed 49 to 94)
    NOTE:  It appears that the CTD station files and the summary file are for two different legs of this cruise, however presently we only have information and documentation for leg 1.  CTD station files may be for leg 2 (1995 whereas leg 1 is 1994)
    	-UNC DEPTH for station 33-122 in SUM file appears to be incorrect (all other stations are deep i.e. 33-121 depth is 4842, 33-123 depth is 4344, however 33-122 depth is 455). However when attempting to compare the CTD station file for this cruise with the summary file information, it was noted that CTD station files submitted by Budeus in 2000 do not match in station number, lat/lon or date.
    PI should be contacted again regarding the differences in these two files.

  • Data needs reformatting Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2001-12-17
    Data Type: CTD
    Action: Update Needed
    I am writing to inquire about the Polarstern CTD data submitted back in June of 2000.  My apologies for only now contacting you, but our queue of data problems and inquiries is quite large.
    I am in need of some clarification and information regarding the data and am hoping you can help.
    My first question is to inquire if these data are available in WOCE format.  The list of data in need of reformatting by the WHP Office is quite large.  Obtaining data in WOCE format will speed up the process of getting these data online and relieve some of the massive reformatting burden.  If not, these data will be reformatted by the Office in due time.
    In order to reformat these data we need some information missing from some of the station files, or a resubmission of these station files. The email pertaining to the data submission indicated that the station positions are located in the header information.  However, the first 16 stations (an120010.c00 through an120142.c00) are missing the top 14 lines of header information.  These lines would contain the crucial header information, including station latitude and longitude, necessary to create WOCE formatted CTD and summary files.  Is it possible to get this header information for the above mentioned stations, or perhaps get the stations resubmitted to ensure all the data is included?
    Also, we'd like to confirm that no bottle data is associated with this cruise, and that no station summary file exists at this time, however if there is a file containing the station summary information, may we obtain it from you as well?
    Any information you can provide about this data will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your consideration and cooperation. If you should have any questions regarding this email or any WOCE
    hydrographic data, please do not hesiated to contact me.

    Action: Website Updated:
    I have created a directory for this cruise, and placed the CTD files sent by G. Budeus on line. These files are not in woce format at this time and need significant reformatting. Correspondence will be initiated with Budeus regarding obtaining data in woce format. No other data has been submitted at this time, data are public.

    I have only one copy of the report. p. 6-11 are all there is with respect to the WOCE data we submitted. The complete report was published by AWI, Bremerhaven, Germany. You can try your luck with Olaf Boebel (he and I were on leg one of the cruise together with a lot of scientists from AWI and other institutions). Olaf is now at AWI. His email address is <oboebel@awi-bremerhaven.de>

    Data Type: CTD
    Action: Submitted
    Today I transferred the data files of the Polarstern cruise ANTXII via ftp to the INCOMING directory.
    The files are ascii, but not in WOCE format.
    The names are as follows:
    with an12 for the cruise, xxx for the station, and y for the cast starting with 0 for the first. It is only downcasts. The columns are  p/dbar, t0(68)/deg C, theta0(68)/deg C, s00, sig-t00, sig2-th00 with the 0 indicating the primary sensor set.
    The positions are listed in the header.
    The data can be public. The PI who has collected the data is Jueri Sildam who was working then at AWI; ship is RV Polarstern.
    If there are any further questions or needs, or if the format should be different, please give me a note.

    Action: Data are Public
    I have been in correspondence with Bert Thompson concerning the above data. They are available, and I have agreed to include them on the disc for public use. My co-worker Dr. Gereon Budeus (mailto:gbudeus@awi-bremerhaven.de) has the data set on his computer ready for immediate transfer. Apparently he does not have the right adress for the transfer. Please, arrange with him a suitable procedure.
