    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.

    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.

    BD0493.zip contains  the *.prs (CTD data every 2 db) and  *.sea (Bottle data) files.  We compared the nutrient values  with those from Save 5 cruise,  Legs 4 and 5. The BD0493 data showed considerably lower values than Save data , so  in the *.sea file have been flagged as bad data.
