    A08, 06MT28-1
    
    While checking the Data History I noted an entry by Millard about salinity quality code changes.  I found a file with his notes, A08WSDQE.TXT in ...original/2000.07.05_A08_DQE_HYD.
    
    I checked the online file and these corrections had not been made. While making the salinity changes I noted that there were also a lot of incorrect quality flags for oxygen.
    
    The problem was not just that values for salinity and oxygen of -9.0 had quality flags of 2, but also that there were legitimate values for these parameters that had quality flags of 9.
    
    On the stations where these problems occurred there was always a -9.0 value with a Q flag of 2 (or 4) and a legitimate value with a Q flag of 9 at approximately the same pressure.  So I used the Q flag for the -9.0 value for the Q flag for the legitimate value.
    
    I made lists of these inconsistencies, copied the QUALT1 flags to the QUALT2 flags and CHANGED ONLY the QUALT2 flags.

    Date: 2002-08-19
    Data Type: TCARBN
    Action: Website Updated:
    Note:
    Total carbon (TCARBN) and FCO2 were merged into online bottle file. Previous file was renamed and moved to original directory. Exchange file was created.
    
    Merging CO2 parameters into A08 bottle file:
    
    CO2 bottle file obtained from: A08/original/2002_CO2_CFC_KOZYR_KLEIN_DATA/CARBON/a08.dat
    
    WOCE bottle file obtained from parent A08 directory a08hy.txt
    
    Copied a08.dat to current directory and renamed a08_cpy.dat edited out text at top of file.
    
    Used mrgsea program to merge TCARBN and FCO2.  Two measurements for FCO2 were taken (FCO2@EQTMP and FCO2@20C).  FCO2@EQTMP was used because it had corresponding flag whereas FCO2@20C did not.
    
    Mrgsea did not change the carbon files missing values from -999.9 to -9.0 as indicated it would, so these missing values were edited to correspond to WOCE standards.
    
    Added date/name stamp.
    
    Ran wocecvt on file with no errors (pressures are inverted though).
    
    Final output file (output3_edt.txt) was renamed a08hy.txt and copied to parent directory.  Previous online file was renamed and moved to original directory.
    
    Exchange file was subsequently created.  Program forced FCO2 to be renamed PCO2.  Because FCO2 was a separate measurement from PCO2 in the carbon data file, this header was changed back to FCO2 in the exchange file.  Units were unchanged and remain the same (PPM@EQ).
    Also exchange code did not include parameter EQTMP which was included in merge of WOCE bottle file.
    
    All actions were RCS'd.

  • qualtiy code changes Robert C. Millard

    Date: 2000-07-05
    Data Type: SALNTY
    Action: DQE Report Submitted
    Note:
    Examination of the water sample salinities turned up a mismarking of duplicate level water sample salinities plus a series of salinities with "-9.0" values but labelled as good "2" in  QUALT1.
    
    Water sample salinities are quality controlled by comparing them to up cast CTD salinities.  In the deep water two water sample salinity values were found to be mismarked in the Qual1, both at the same depth of 3762 dbars in station 209.  Scans in the water sample data file with Qualt1 and modified Qualt2 flags are listed below.

    3) A "NUMBER OBS." column was added with "-9.0"s.
    
    4) CTD data file names were changed from M28sss.WHP to a08_0sss.wct where sss is Station Number.
    
    5) EXPOCODE in data file was changed from 06MT28/1 to 06MT28_1.
    
    6) TEMP label changed from "DEC C" to "ITS-90" based on description of calibration in CTD documentation.

        a08hy.txt had these exact duplicate samples.
         stn=202 cast=1 btlnbr=207  sampno=1869    deleted 1 dupe.
         stn=211 cast=2 btlnbr=309  sampno=2354 + sampno=2353   left asis.

         stn=226 cast=2 btlnbr=323  sampno=3077    deleted 1 dupe.
        corrected this error in a08hy.txt
         stn=268 cast=1, two records have btlnbr=208.
             the one with sampno=2986 and press=70.  should be btlnbr=209.
             corrected.
     
        couldn't merge in new data from stn=264, btlnbr=221 at 69.8 dbars.
        this probably should be btlnbr=321 at 71dbars.
     
        couldn't merge in new data from stn=270, btlnbr=223 at 39.4 dbar.
        this should probably be btlnbr=323 at 41 dbar.
     
        couldn't merge in new data from stn=274 btlnbr=220 at 11.2 dbar.
        this should probably be btlnbr=320 at 12dbar.
    
    resolution of 3 probs directly above:
         using originators labels and numbers.
         stnnbr=264 cast=2 btlnbr=21  changed to cast 3.
         stnnbr=270 cast=2 btlnbr=23  changed to cast 3.
         stnnbr=274 cast=2 btlnbr=20  changed to cast 3.
    Cast and bottle number and sample number were incompatible between the existing .hyd file and the originators new cfc file. So I had to use the following proceedure.  Multiply originators CASTNO by 100 and add to originators BTLNBR.  This sum can be matched with the .hyd file's  BTLNBR.  Temporarily swap the SAMPNO and BTLNBR column labels in the .hyd file.  Use mrgsea program to merge keying on STNNBR and SAMPNO.  Swap back column labels after all merging done.

There are two CO2 parameters: Total CO2 and fCO2 with quality flags. Please note that all fCO2 measurements are given at 20 deg. C.

    Data Type: CTD/SUM
    Action: Update Needed
    Note:
    I received the below msg of Robert Key while I'm working in Brazil for a week. It concerns with a problem that arose earlier with A9, and may arise with A8, too. The problem maybe identified as Robert Key suspected:
    
    On all 3 sections A9, A10 and A8, the Kiel CTD group on-board counted casts increasingly, starting with 1 and ending with some high number. All other groups on-board were asked to keep these cast numbers for identification. To my knowledge, and J. Holfort may confirm this, the cast numbers as created on-board have been used in the CTD and SUM files we sent to the WHPO. Later (I do not exactly remember when) I got to know that someone at the WHPO changed the cast numbers in the SUM and CTD files to start with 1 for each station (as it is usual for the rest of the world). However, changing the cast numbers in the CTD and SUM files will cause problems with the rosette file as it will be completed with additional data flowing in. It seems to me that this is the problem the WHPO now is facing. The way out of it would be as recommended by Robert Key: 
    
    DO NOT CHANGE CAST NUMBERS BUT KEEP THEM KEEP THEM AS THEY ARE SENT IN BY THE PIs (besides obvious mistakes). To solve the problem, you may have to reconstruct the original cast numbers from the original SUM and CTD files as they were sent in by the PIs.
    
    Juergen Holfort who has sent the CTD, SUM and part of the HYD files for A8, A9 and A10, and myself will assist if neccessary.

    2. The bottle data
    ------------------
    
    2.1 Non WHP stations included in bottle file:
    Stat. 164 - 168: Teststations
    165, 166       : muliple bottle closing at large depths
    245, 247       : extra CTD's for biological measurements; no bottles
    275 - 286      : CTD/LADCP only; no bottles; waiting for clearance for Angola
    
    
    2.2 About STNNBR, CASTNO, SAMPNO, BTLNBR
    The data cycles are organized to increasing STNNBR. CASTNO's are 
    counted consecutively (1, 2, 3, 4, 5,...) regardless which CTD was 
    used; one station may have several casts (mostly two). BTLNBR's are 
    within 301 and 324 for the rosette with the main (deep) CTD NB3, and 
    within  201 and 224 for the shallow CTD NB2. 
    
    Within a STNNBR, cycles are organized to increasing CTDPRS. Therefore, 
    the CASTNO needs not to be a monotonically increasing function in the 
    file.
    
    The SAMPNO is counted with time for each CTD separately (with an offset which 
    makes them unique).

    I have another data set ready for you. This time it is the CFC measurements (CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113, CCl4) for Meteor cruise M28 (A8). The data file is called M28_1.woc, the corresponding documentation is in file m28doc.txt. Helium and neon measurements from this cruise have been submitted earlier and have been declared public. Our lab has also been responsible for the tritium measurements from the cruise. The measurements have been finished, but the tritium data still need a final qulaity controll. I will send the tritium data to you as soon as possible. CFC data for the cruise can be public.
