  • Some online data preliminary Dr. Robert M. Key

    Date: 2008-03-06
    Data Type: CFC/P/T/S
    Action: Update needed
    I believe that the P,T,S data you currently on line is preliminary.  
    The file(s) also have no bottle/sample. I have in my hot little hands  
    the final calibration file for P,T,S provided by Norbert Verch at the  
    request of Meincke. I also have the final CFC data provided by Reiner  
    Steinfeldt (Rhein's group). The CFC file appears to have the final T,P  
    data,  but not S. Two CTDs were used during the cruise and the T,S  
    calibration info is segregated accordingly.
    Could one of you, who is more accustomed to dealing with the T/S  
    calibration files (In order of importance/help):
    1. let me know if my interpretation is correct
    2. update the online file
    3. add the CFC
    If 2/3 can't be done very quickly, let me know and I'll take a shot,  
    but I'd really appreciate input on (1) asap. The calibration file  
    (MT45-4.calibration.txt)  and CFC file (06MT45_4TS.txt) are attached.
    As a heads up, I also have data from legs 2 & 3 of this expedition  
    which I can send along. For leg 3 only, I have the CTD zip file which  
    I haven't touched. Both bottle files are "complete" so far as I know.

  • Minor edits made for conversion Danie Bartolacci

    Action: Website Updated:
    For the purposes of conversion to exchange and netCDF files, minor edits were made to all files recently reformatted by Sarilee. Notes on edits were sent to Jerry Kappa. 
    All new files were placed in parent directory, old files moved to original directory and web page files regenerated to link all to website.
    Here are notes for edits that needed to be made in order to finish reformatting and conversion.  All files are online and linked now.
    20031102  DMB
    In order to convert CTD files to exchange and netCDF formats the following edits were made to all files:
    -Edited station number in station file 511 from 151 to 511.
    -Edited station number in station file 512 from 152 to 512.
    -Added missing value (-9) to Oxy and No. Obs. columns
    -added asterisks to all columns along with a Q1 byte of 2 for valid (present and assumed good) values and 5 for any missing values.  This was needed for conversion purposes.
    Converted all files to exchange and netCDF and created inventory file with no errors detected.  Linked all new files online and moved previous files to original directory.
    2003.11.02  DMB
    After experimenting with several edits in order to convert bottle file bottle and summary files:
    SUM:  Removed "H" from line designation AR25H.  Removed "COR DEPTH" empty column.
    BOT:  Added missing value -9 to both SAMPNO and BTLNBR columns.  It was necessary to add Q1 bytes to file in order to convert it to exchange and subsequent netCDF.  A Q1 of 2 was added for all valid (present, assumed good) values, and 5 for any missing data values.
    File converted to exchange and netcdf with no errors.  Inventory files were generated and all previous files were moved to orignal directory. New files placed online and webpage files regenerated.
  • Data reformatted, needs to be placed online Sarilee Anderson

    Date: 2003-09-02
    Data Type: SUM/CTD/BTL
    Action: Data Reformatted
    Formatted .sum, .sea, and .wct files. Sent notes to Jerry. Needs to be put online.
    Reformatting notes:
    Sept. 2, 2003
    Made a .sum file using information from file ar25_hhy.csv.  The .sum file has EXPOCODE, WOCE SECT, STNNBR, CASTNO, CAST TYPE, DATE, TIME, EVENT CODE, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, NAV, and UNC DEPTH.  After looking at the documentation I assumed that the cast type was ROS and the nav was GPS. I made the event codes all BE.
    Made a .hyd file from ar25_hhy.csv.  The only parameters are STNNBR, CASTNO, CTDPRS, CTDTMP, and CTDSAL.  There were no QUALT1 flags so I left them blank.
    Made individual .wct files from ar25_hct.csv which has all the stations in one file with no headers for the different stations.  There were no QUALT1 flags, so I left those blank.  There is CTDPRS, only integer values, CTDTMP, some integer, some to one decimal, some to two decimals, some to three decimals, and CTDSAL, some one decimal, some two decimals and some three decimals.  The ctd casts are every decibar.

    Action: Website Updated:
    The data for this cruise was copied from NON_WHP/CM_HYDRO_2001.03.09_JCREASE/CURRENT_METER_WOCE_CRUISES/AR18_ACM8.
    Cruise Expocode is 06MT45_4 with date August 13 - 31st, 1999.  It was decided from the Mooring chart and other ar25 directories that this cruise should be assigned the letter f.  There are Bottle and CTD data in CSV format online.  Documentation was provided via 2 htm files that were linked to the DOC section online. Small modification was made to the second DOC link so it 
    would read the map it uses. The file name was changed from 19990123.gif to ar25_fdo_2.gif in the htm file.

    attached is a cruise report that covers METEOR cruises 45_1 thru 45_5b.  We already have cruise 45_4 up and online and Schott has been contacted about obtaining data from the others.  All these were 1999 cruises on the METEOR.
