Notes on A02b (06MT039_3) merging May 4, 2007, on line May 24, 2007: Merged CFC-11 amd CFC-12 from Reiner Steinfeldt message of January 22, 2007, into WOCE format bottle file (Version 20030411WHPOSIOSA). Made new Exchange and NetCDF bottle files. See Steinfeldt message for additional info.
Please note that the CFC-11 and CFC-12 data on the WOCE/CLIVAR website (cchdo.ucsd.edu) for the cruise M39/3 (A02 section in 1997) are incorrect. The CFC-113 and CCl4 data, however, are correct. In some cases the deviations between the data on the website and the original data from the Bremen oceanography group are very small and may result from the difference between the SIO93 and SIO98 CFC-scale, the SIO98 scale being used on the website. As the CFC-113 and CCL4 data on the website are reported on the SIO93 scale, it would be more consistent to use the same scale for CFC-11 and CFC-12 also. I therefore send you a correct version of the CFC-11 and CFC-12 data from M39/3 reported on the SIO93 scale. These data are authorized by the CFC-PI Wolfgang Roether. Please correct the erroneous CFC data on the website as soon as possible.
Corrected the missing data code for DELHE3 from -9.00 to -999.00. Put new file online, made new exchange file, sent notes to Jerry. Notes on change to missing data code for a02b, 06MT039_3 April 11, 2003 a02b 06MT039_3 The missing data code in the online file was -9.00. I changed it to -999.00 to conform with the WOCE standard.

SE merged the TCARBN and ALKALI from Kozyr. The CFC11 and CFC12 from Lebel. Made new exchange file. Merge notes from SE for a02b: Retrieved the TCARBN and ALKAKI from the CDIAC website re Kozyr's Aug. 14, 2002 e-mail. Got the CFC's from he Lebel directory in ...a02b/original. Added a 7th * (asterix) to the delhe3 column of a02bhy.txt. It was merging the cfc's wrong. Then started over. Not worring about the "... samples from new file were not used." 1. Added tcarbn and alkali. 2. Removed the columns CF11ER CF12ER CF113ER CCL4ER from the hy file. Did this becuase we are merging new cfc's, and the error will not reflect these changes. 3. merged cfc-11, only QUALT2 flags were changed 4. merged cfc-12, only QUALT2 flags were changed

The following are results from the examminer.pl and plotter.pl code that were run on this cruise. Not all of the errors are reported but rather a summery of what was found. For more information you can go to the cruise directory, and look at the NEW file called CruiseLine_check.txt. Two plot files are also present. _oxy.ps and _sal.ps No _oxy.ps and _sal.ps files in this directory due to missing CTDOXY unit. Bottle file needs to be checked. station #336 exists in a02b_hy1.csv, but does not have a corresponding CTD file.
Exchange files updated for both CTD and Bottle data. Files placed online. (reason; bottle data has many more parameters than before).
Exchange file renamed. It didn't link with the name in the index.htm file (because it was named a02a_hy1.csv, it should have been a02b_hy1.csv), It now links in just fine. Tom Haine (Oxford/JHU) found this problem.
SUM, CTD and bottle data has been updated by newly received data. Bottle file has been converted to exchange code and put online. Old data was moved into the original directory.
The data you hold are outdated and have been replaced since long time ago. We will work with Birgit Klein to provide WHPO with a composite small volume file that ensures data consistency and homogeneity.
we finally finished one of our last tracer data sets from the WOCE period. We have submitted the CFC data for the cruise M39_3 in february 2000 (I resubmit them with the other tracer data just for the sake of completness). Now we have also finished the tritium measurements and I am therefore sending you a final tracer data set for this cruise with CFC, helium and tritium data. We have waited for the completion of the tritium data to make the necessary corrections on the helium data. The entire tracer data set is final and can be made public immediately. Our tracer bottle file has only 1518 lines compared to the bottle file at the WHPO which is 1550 lines long. We have used the most recent hydrography released from the BSH which has eliminated a number of spurious entries in the earlier hydrography. The eliminated lines concern station 291, cast 1, bottle 27-36, and station 298, cast 1, bottle 22-1. If you have questions about the hydrography, please contact Gerd Stelter about the changes. The data file is named m393.woc the associated documentation on standard, date quality etc is given in m39cal.dok
With regard to Meteor 39/3 we just received an updated file of the CFC data from Uli Fleischmann. Gerd Stelter will incoporate these data, check for other inconsistencies and particularly go at the conversion xx/L to xx/kg, using lab temperature for density. So I suggest that WHPO will wait until it receives an updated set of files for that cruise. Just to avoid double action.
In two weeks time I will leave for a CLIVAR survey of the former A1E section. As a preparation I have downloaded from WHPO the data of your two A2 surveys (Meteor cruises 30 and 39). It appeared the the summary files still contain some errors in position (probably typos) when you plot the cruise track from these positions. A more serious error is that for meteor cruise 39-3 the nitrate and silicate data are in the wrong columns, or have the wrong headers. And a remaining question is, are the chemical data for cruise 39 indeed in micromol per liter instead of kg? Comparison of data from both cruises suggests (but not yet beyond reasonable doubt), that in both cruises the concentration units are similar.
I have received a mail from Koltermann regarding the status of our CFC data for this cruise. The data have been submitted in February of this year and at that time we did not declare them public. It is no problem for us to declare the CFC data set public now so that the data file can be included on the CD. By the way, there is a public bottle data file at the website for this cruise but it does not include columns for CFCs. I asssumed that there should have been an encrypted data file for this cruise and furthermore the table lists the CFCs as residing with the PI which is not the case since we have submitted them. Could you please make sure that our data get merged before the file is put on the CD.
I would prefer the data to be nonpublic since we are still having some work in progress based on this data.
As per your email on 10.15.1999 I have obtained the G316 cruise from Lynne Talley's website and released all data for the following cruises to the public domain: 06MT30_2 06MT39_3 06GA276_2 06GA316_1
I have obtained two ctd zip files from Lynne's data directory. They belong to AR19 06GA276_2 and A02 06mt39_03 both by Kolterman, they are linked to the public table, currently nonpublic and encrypted pending word from Koltermann. Main tables have been edited to reflect this change.

I have updated the A02/AR19 lines per Dr. Koltermann's message from last year. A02: 06MT30_2 (SUM, S/O2, NUTS, CFC(11,12,113) and CTD) A02: 06MT039_3 (New Bottle (S/O2, NUTS), *no* CTD) AR19 06GA276_2 (Bottle (S/O2, NUTS) *no* CTD) We have no CTD for 06MT039_3 or 06GA276_2, please request from Dr. Koltermann (or better yet, Gouretski/Jancke). We also need electronic DOCS for all lines. I have an email message dated 3/1998 requesting CTD/DOCs, but they never appeared on the ftp site. Perhaps it is my oversight. We will also need to know which additional parameters were measured (He/Tr, C14, etc.) and when/if we might expect them. All bottle parameters are non-public pending approval from Dr. Koltermann. Please have him, or his staff, check or pages for accuracy and thank him for his continued patience. Danie and I will update all of his other AR19 cruises in the coming weeks. Of course, all webpages and datafiles have been updated to reflect these changes.
A2 has been done, again. We finished last night and are heading for St John s. The Mann Eddy is very intensive, and temperature is near constant down to 800 m. Plastered it with additional XBTs. A lot of LC water is thinly spreading east and south: with SST still around 14 deg, at 40 m we find sub-zero temperatures. This time we worked 66 full-depth stations with a total of 86 casts. Double casts where needed since our 36 rosette, which worked nicely last year until the wire showed wear, didn t want to get going this time. Two moorings west of the MAR with a total 25 instruments show great stuff, LSW arrival in May, June, summer situation with noisy warm and salty stuff from the SW.
