Data History

  • BTL CFC data has more stations than SUM CFC data Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2003-10-30
    Data Type: CFCs
    Action: Update Needed
    Hi Ms. Lebel-
    I work on the WOCE/CLIVAR data repeat cruise data and have come across a problem with the AR13 CFC data submitted by you on 2003.04.23. The file submitted contained CFC data for stations 14 thru 54 however the summary file of station navigation we have for this cruise only
    contains stations 1 - 47.  So, we have no navigation information for stations 48 - 54.  These stations have been edited out of our exchange and netCDF files since these file formats contain navigation information along with bottle data.
    If you have navigation information for the stations 48 - 54, could we obtain it from you at this time?  Otherwise these stations' data will continue to be absent from our exchange and netCDF bottle files.
    The cruise was on the Valdivia from 07.14 - 07.26 1998, expocode 06AZ172.
    Thanks very much for your time.
    Danie Kinkade

    Enclosed you will find a station summary file (v172.sum) concerning the R/V Valdivia cruise V172 (expocode 06AZ172, AR13/AR27). The PI of this cruise was Monika Rhein. Would you please add this to the web page and exchange the station summary file?
    Please note that the file is not formatted according to the WOCE format. In addition, station numbers and profile numbers are identical at some but not all stations. The bottle file at WHP contains station numbering while the corrupt station summary file (ar13_esu.txt) at the same location contains profile numbers and the corresponding positions etc. To adjust this, both station numbers and profile numbers are now included.
    The columns in this file > v172.sum < are as follows:
    - Station Number
    - Profile Number
    - Year
    - Month
    - Day
    - Decimal Hour
    - Latitude         [deg]
    - Longitude        [deg]
    - Water Depth      [m]
    - Maximum Pressure [dbar]
  • Encrypted NetCDF and Exchange files online Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2003-10-29
    Data Type: BTL
    Action: Website Updated:
    I have created exchange and netCDF bottle files for the bottle file reformatted by Sarilee. Bottle file stations 48-54 were not contained in the summary file and therefore were edited from the bottle file before creating exchange and netcdf files (since these file formats contain summary navigation data). An email was sent to the data contact D. Lebel requesting navigation data for these stations as well as updated public status.
    Files were placed online and web pages regenerated. New files were encrypted as all data are still non-public at this time.
  • Data are Public, files unencrypted Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2003-10-29
    Data Type: BTL
    Action: Data are Public
    In a reply by D. LeBel, it was stated that these data are public and therefore have been unencrypted. Formal release from Monika Rhein was recommended by Dr. LeBel. Email will be sent to this effect.
  • SUM/BTL reformatted, not online due to station discrepancy Sarilee Anderson

    Date: 2003-10-22
    Data Type: SUM/BTL
    Action: Data Reformatted
    Formatted the .sea and .sum file. Sent notes to Jerry. Did not put online as there is a difference in the number of stations in the .sea and .sum file.
    October 22, 2003
    Formatted the .sea file.  There is only pressure, temperature, salinity, cfc-11 and cfc-12.  The original file had cfc-12 then cfc-11.  I reversed them and their accompaning Q1 flags.  I assumed the salinity was from the ctd.
    The pressures were deep to shallow, I reversed them.
    There was no cast number or sample number.  I set the cast to 1 and the sample no to -9.
    There were no QUALT1 flags for BTLNBR or CTDSAL.
    Formatted the .sum file.   Added the EXPOCODE, WOCE SECT, set the CASTNO to 1, set the CAST TYPE to ROS since the conversion program to exchange does not like UNK, set CODE to UN, converted decimal degrees for LAT and LON. to degrees and decimal minutes, set NAV to GPS.
    Converted decimal hours to hours and minutes.
    The .sum file has information for stations 1-47, but the bottle file has data for stations 14,15,17,19-30, 32, 34, 36-46, and 48-54.  So there is not information for 48-54 in the .sum file.
