Data History

  • CTD reformatted, see note: Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2003-02-18
    Data Type: CTD
    Action: Website Updated:
    I have reformatted the CTD files for this cruise. Please note that all CTD files have OXYGEN values in the .001 UMOL/KG range at all depths. A Q1 byte of &"1" was given to all valid data and a "9" given to missing values since no Q1 bytes were sent with data. WOCE CTD files were checked with wctcvt and no errors were found. Exchange and netCDF files were created as well as inventory files.
    NOTE: No data history is available for this cruise so it is unclear if these data are still to be encrypted as NONpublic or if they can now be public. Presently no files have been linked to the web yet, but files are in place. Files will not be linked until it is clear if they are to be encrypted or not (later cruises from Piola are now public and it is unclear if these files were encrypted by PI or because of their unformatted status).
  • No CTD or BOT exchange made Danie Bartolacci

  • Reformatted data online, see note: Danie Bartolacci

    Date: 2001-12-13
    Data Type: BTL/SUM
    Action: Website Updated:
    Bottle files for these cruises were submitted by M. Charo on 2001.11.26.  These files were reformatted along with the previously submitted summary files. All files have been placed online and previous versions moved to the original directories.  bottle files for 0394 and 0196 are still non-public, however another request for public release was sent to M. Charo and A. Piola on 2001.12.12.
    All cruises listed above are missing CFCs.  As no documentation exists, presence of CFC data needs to be confirmed.  Currently the database list these parameters as outstanding.  1094 and 0196 are still missing nutrients, this too needs to be confirmed with PI's.
    Please Note:  data files for 08BD0394, 08EH1094 and 08PD0196 all contained underscores with leg 1.  this  needs to be changed in the database.  Also, previous correspondence has stated the 1997 Deseado cruise will not be submitted to whpo before the archive date.   Confirmation request has been sent to M. Charo and A. Piola along with public release request mentioned above.

    Action: Submitted
    The above expocodes & sum files were submitted by Marcela charo on 2001.11.05.  These files have been placed in their corresponding directories and linked to the website. All however will need minor reformatting which has been noted on the index pages.
    Please not the last three expocodes do not contain an  _1 leg number however the data files do. It is unclear at this time if the index and website pages should be changed to reflect the expocode in the data.

    Hello Marcela, 
    I realize it's been almost a year or more since we've spoken about  AR08 data, but once again I have a few questions for you.  Regarding the most recently submitted cruises:
    Balda  March '93 (BD0493)
    Balda August '93 (BD0993)
    Balda March '94 (BD0394)
    Holmberg September '94 (EH1094)
    Puerto Deseado March '96 (PD0196)
    We are lacking summary files (these files contain the cruise's station navigation information) and cruise reports.  These files  were missing from the data submission in March of 2000.
    Can you tell me if there are station navigation files and cruise reports for the cruises listed above, and if so, may we obtain them at this time?
    The CTD files appear to have beginning latitude and longitude in each station files, so if necessary we could construct the navigation file, but the cruise report is usually a document that comes from the Chief Scientist (in this case Piola). 
    For an example of a cruise report from the Chief Scientist, please see one of the other AR08 cruises (08EA0192_1, 08BD0491_1,  08EH0492_1) located on our repeat data website:
    And finally, can please you update us on the status of the 1997 Deseado  cruise and when we might expect the data?  Anything that you can send us before the rush of printing the final WOCE CD ROM is greatly appreciated.
