Merged CFC-11 and CFC-12 into web bottle file. Put new WOCE format and exchange format bottle files online. Details in "notes." Notes on P17E Mar 24, 2003 D. Muus 1. Merged CFCs from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/p17e/original/ 2001.07.09_P17E_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER/20010709.180104_WISEGARVER_P17E/ 20010709.180104_WISEGARVER_P17E_p17e_CFC_DQE.dat into web bottle file (20030306WHPOSIODM) 2. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 3. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
Replaced DELC13 decimal-1-data with decimal-2-data from same original data file. Notes on P17E Mar 6, 2003 D. Muus 1. Replaced 1-decimal-place DELC13 in p17ehy.txt (20020807WHPOSIODN) [DN should have been DM] with 2-decimal-place DELC13 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/p17e/original/ 2001.05.03_P17E_C13_KEY/p17e19s_c13.key 2. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 3. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.

Merged revised ODF temperatures into current web bottle file. Replaced CTD files with revised ODF files. New bottle and ctd files now on web with new exchange files. Notes on P17E/P19S merging: 1. Merged P17E/P19S CTDTMP and THETA from ODF Revised Temperature file: /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p17ep19s/p17ep19shyd.zip into bottle file (p17ehy.txt 20020607WHPOSIOSA) 2. Replaced CTD data files with Revised ODF CTD files with corrected temperatures from: /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p17ep19s/p17ep19sctd.zip. Changed file names from ssscc.ctd to p17e_0sss.wct for Cast 1 to p17e_0sss.2.wct for Cast 2 where sss = Station Number cc = Cast Number to conform to present WOCE file name format. 4. Made new exchange files for CTD and Bottle data. Conversion to CTD exchange files takes WOCE line from sumfile for CTD exchange file names. In this case the sumfile has WOCE SECT IDs p17e and p19s. Left files names as is since they are already in chronological order in the zip file and would thus plot in normal sequence on Java Ocean Atlas. 5. Checked new data files with Java Ocean Atlas.
large volume sample data was linked to website.
Found file p17e_lvs.txt in p17e/original. File appears to be ok. Added time stamp. File needs to be linked.
Copied the QUALT1 flags for DELC13 to QUALT2, as the QUALT2 flags had been set to 1. This was brought to my attention by SE. Made new exchange file.
looking at the data, there is no obvious analytical problem. if we would flag the data point we would have to do it on the grounds of consistency of the contouring. we are dealing with very low tritium concentrations and some noise above the analytical error is not completely surprising. in such cases, i am usually somewhat hesitant to flag data points if i can't find an analytical problem. - Peter

The negative value (which I set to zero for contouring, but which doesn't really show up in the plot) sticks out since it's embedded between two really non-zero values, but it also maps into a minimum on the adjacent stations, so perhaps is also a true minimum. - Lynne
Corrected minor format error in headers brought to my attention by SE. The placement of the ending * was not in the correct column.
SE found the word LONGITUDE in the .sum to be one space too far to the left. I corrected it and put new file online.
Merged DELC13 into online file p17ehy.txt (20020416WHPOSIODM). DELC13 was retrieved from Bob Key's ftp site in May of 2001.
Created new exchange file and put online.
Remerged Lupton helium after inadventant deletion during April 8, 2002, LDEO helium, tritium merge. See notes file for details. Notes on P17E/P19S merging April 16, 2002 D. Muus 1. Remerged Lupton deep helium and delhe3 after they were inadvertantly deleted during the April 8, 2002, merge of LDEO helium data. from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/p17e/original/1999.10.08_P17E_P19S_HE_LUPTON-EVANS/p19shel_edt.dat into web bottle file (20020408WHPOSIODM). 2. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all merged values. 3. Now Lupton values overwrite LDEO values where both exist for the same bottle. Comparison of LDEO and Lupton duplicates remains the same as shown in April 8, 2002, merge notes. 4. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 5. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
ctdtmp, ctdoxy, theta, oxygen, silcat, nitrat, nitrit, phspht, tritum, helium, delhe3, triter, helier, delher, qualt2 Merged LDEO helium and tritium plus ODF revised temperature and associated ODF bottle data into bottle file and put on-line. Missing value indicators changed from -0.(0)9 to -9.0(0). Notes on P17E/P19S merging April 8, 2002 D. Muus 1. Replaced QUALT2 (mostly "1"s) with QUALT1 in 20001017WHPOSIOSRA. 2. Merged Helium, DelHe3 and Tritium from: comma-separated_value file attached to Bob Newton(LDEO) message 14:59:05 PST, Mar 14, 2002 into current web bottle file (20001017WHPOSIOSRA). 3. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all merged values. 4. Changed all quality flag "1"s to "9"s. 5. Replaced missing(blank) quality flag 1 for Sta 232, Ca 1, Sample 36, 3545.5db with "3". This flag is missing in earliest WHPOSIO file found (19980213LDTWHPOSIO). DELC14 value is higher than values just above. 6. LDEO values overwrote Lupton(PMEL) values where both exist for the same bottle. Comparison of Schlosser (LDEO) data and Lupton (PMEL) data: First line is LDEO data received March 2002. Second line is PMEL data received April 2000 for same sample bottle.

Note: New ODF file also contains LVS data so merged small volume data only into WHPO bottle file. ODF QUALT1 differs from WHPO QUALT1, apparently because DQE results not included. Used WHPO QUALT1 for ODF data. 9. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 10. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas. 11. Station 182 CTDOXY samples 1-21 (5.0-879.4db) bad. QUALT1 flag is 3. Changed QUALT2 flag to 4 per Bob Millard Dec 11, 1996 DQE report.
Hello whomever notes and fixes sum files - There is an irregularity in the p17e/p19s sum file - There is a float listed at 56 59'S with a station ID of 213 (and cast number of 2). This SHOULD be station ID of 212 (and keep the cast "2"). How do I know this? (1) check the position of the float drop - it's the same as station 212. (2) check the actual float data (which I have from Russ Davis) - also at the same location as station 212. (This is actually float 208, but the actual float numbers have no correspondence with the hydrographic station numbers.)
we have gone through all juno tritium data and flagged them according to woce procedures. we also plotted sections to check if there are flyers in the data set. the final step we have to complete before submission is to determine the cosmogenic tritium that we subtract from the present numbers. this is only relevant for very low tritium concentrations such as those found in the southern ocean deep and bottom waters (ca. 0.005 to 0.01 TU). i hope that we can finish this by tomorrow and then submit the final tritium and helium isotope numbers to the whpo.
created .ps files, check with gs viewer. Created *check.txt file
CTD has been converted to exchange using the new code and put online.
I have placed the updated CFC data file sent by Wisegarver into the P17e original directory in a subdirectory called 2001.07.09_P17E_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER This directory contains data, documentation and readme files. data are ready for merging
CTD and Bottle files in exchange format have been put online.
ODF has discovered a small error in the algorithm used to convert ITS90 temperature calibration data to IPTS68. This error affects reported Mark III CTD temperature data for most cruises that occurred in 1992-1999. A complete list of affected data sets appears below. ODF temperature calibrations are reported on the ITS90 temperature scale. ODF internally maintains these calibrations for CTD data processing on the IPTS68 scale. The error involved converting ITS90 calibrations to IPTS68. The amount of error is close to linear with temperature: approximately -0.00024 degC/degC, with a -0.00036 degC offset at 0 degC. Previously reported data were low by 0.00756 degC at 30 degC, decreasing to 0.00036 degC low at 0 degC. Data reported as ITS90 were also affected by a similar amount. CTD conductivity calibrations have been recalculated to account for the temperature change. Reported CTD salinity and oxygen data were not significantly affected. Revised final data sets have been prepared and will be available soon from ODF (ftp://odf.ucsd.edu/pub/HydroData). The data will eventually be updated on the whpo.ucsd.edu website as well. IPTS68 temperatures are reported for PCM11 and Antarktis X/5, as originally submitted to their chief scientists. ITS90 temperatures are reported for all other cruises. _______________________________________________________________________ Changes in the final data vs. previous release (other than temperature and negligible differences in salinity/oxygen): S04P: 694/03 CTD data were not reported, but CTD values were reported with the bottle data. No conductivity correction was applied to these values in the original .sea file. This release uses the same conductivity correction as the two nearest casts to correct salinity. AO94: Eight CTD casts were fit for ctdoxy (previously uncalibrated) and resubmitted to the P.I. since the original release. The WHP-format bottle file was not regenerated. The CTDOXY for the following stations should be significantly different than the original .sea file values: 009/01 013/02 017/01 018/01 026/04 033/01 036/01 036/02 I09N: The 243/01 original CTD data file was not rewritten after updating the ctdoxy fit. This release uses the correct ctdoxy data for the .ctd file. The original .sea file was written after the update occurred, so the ctdoxy values reported with bottle data should be minimally different. ======================================================================== DATA SETS AFFECTED: WOCE Final Data - NEW RELEASE AVAILABLE: WOCE Section ID P.I.

Bottle: (helium, delhe3, neon, helier, delher, neoner) Merged DELHE3, HELIUM, and NEON from Schlosser into hyd file. Updated file put on-line. Merging notes in original subdir 2000.04.03_P17E_P19S_HE_NE_XXX. 2000.10.16 SRA Notes on merging delhe, delher, helium, helier, neon, neoner from Schlosser: Reformatted original data files (P17EHeNe.SEA & P19SHeNe.SEA) for merging (P*edt.SEA). There were some existing delhe and helium data in the hyd file from Lupton-Evans. The following sta/cast/btl data values were replicated within the data sets, and the Lupton-Evans data was overwritten with the Schlosser data: 206/2/20,23,25,29,33,35;217/1/17;225/1/16;233/1/19. P17EHeNe.SEA data file had two entries for 195/1/25. Reviewed ODF's Sample Log sheet for this expedition; verified 2 samples were drawn from this Niskin bottle (not a data entry mistake from PI). Used data for all parameters from first entry.
The bottle data file for P17E/P19S (aka Juno-2; expocode 316N138_10) contains a handful or two of data artifacts of as-yet unknown origin. Sometimes the problem is only bogus values of dissolved oxygen (-0.9) or salt, and sometimes the bogus values might extend more broadly across a bottle data file. Unusual flag values accompany the bogus data. My guess is that this is associated with some sort of column offset during data merging by the WHPO, but Kristin is double-checking the ODF original files just in case. Examples (not all-inclusive list): station 162, 2031 decibars station 140, 2129 db station 148, 3018 db station 146, 3338 db. station 145, 2145 db.
For the P17E/P19S cruise, station 232, bottle 36 (bottom/deepest bottle), our file has no quality byte for the 14C value.
I was looking through Section P17E/P19S .hy file and found some problems with missing values numbers: in the salinity (-0.0009 values), oxygen (-0.9), phosphate, silicate and nitrate (-0.09).
Bottle: (helium, delhe3) Merged Helium and delHe3 data and data flags into BTL file. Merging notes are in orignal subdir 1999.10.08_P17E_P19S_HE_LUPTON-EVANS. 2000.08.30 SRA p19shel_edt.dat : copied the p19s.cvs.txt file into this file and edited contents. Substituted spaces for ',', lined up columns for merging and replaced missing molal[He] data on sta. 23301 bottle 32 w/ -9.0000 (formerly white space). Determined runtime formats (a,i,a,f,i): %deltaHe : a7, i6, a7, f9.2, i6 molal[He]: a7, i6, a7, 15x, f11.4, i6 p17ehy_rplcd_2000,08.30.txt : currently in original dir. Formerly p17e/p19ehy.txt file; replaced with bottle file containing merged helium data and flags.
I transferred files over to the ftp-incoming directory the easy way (for me)... You will find the following "new" directories in /usr/export/ftp-incoming on whpo: p16a_p17a p17c_p17s_p16s p17e_p19s I already gave you p19c (which I see is in P19Cdoc). I thought it was redundant to put long names in every filename, so I made the directory name with the cruise lines, and the files are all the same. The figs files are all figxx.ps (where xx should indicate the figure numbers referenced in the documentation). I also included ps and ascii versions of the original documentation and applicable appendices. (appendix a and b will be missing - they are outdated now and shouldn't be included in anything.)
as mentioned in my recent message, we will release our data with a flag that indicates that they are not yet final. We started the process of transferring the data and we will continue with the transfer during the next weeks. I had listed the expected order of delivery in my last message.
I have merged total carbon, pco2, and pco2tmp into the p17e_p19s bottle file. The data are from Alex Kozyr and are public. I have replaced the file in the data directory and updated the public table to reflect the file change. Merging Notes for p17e_p19s Carbon/Alkalinity -from Alex Kozyr (no documentation with file). File contained Tcarb, pco2, pco2tmp -Missing data values for all parameters were changed from -999.90 to -9.0 WOCE format -All data were in WOCE format and units. -Data are public as per Alex Kozyr. -Data were merged on 05.11.99 by DMB and wocecvt run on it. No errors were generated beyond those that occured on p17ehy.txt (original WHPO file). -New files: p17ehy_carb.txt, p17ep19s.err (contains output from wocecvt), p17ep19s.sd2 (contains sd2 format used by Lynne Talley).
Maggie Cook found two date errors, both for station 176, in the p17esu.txt file. (Station goes past midnight and date was not changed in the file.) I have edited it and put it in my personal ftp site.
Maggie Cook at WHOI alerted me to very small errors in the headers in the sum files for p17n and p17e - the LATITUDE and LONGITUDE labels are 1 column too far to the left. I have fixed them and put them in the incoming for the WHPO. I also changed the date stamp on them, but if you think these changes are too minor, change those back. Lynne
I have provided hyd files for all these cruises, QC'ed by me, albeit not in WOCE format. I can resend if needed. Other than format, the only strange thing about these files was that I supplied a flag for revtmp, which I think appropriate given the number of things that can go wrong. Lynne may have these files reformatted since she has been using the results in the atlas prep.
