Data History

  • Data units confirmed J. C. Jennings-Jr.

    Date: 2004-11-29
    Data Type: NUTs
    Action: Data Update
    Note:
    I dug out the original P6 data and can verify that the data on the WHPO website ARE in the stated units of micromoles per kilogram.
    
    I pulled one station from each leg at random and in all cases, the phosphate, silicate, and nitrate concentations given in the WHPO site are approximately 97.56% of our original data. This is consistent with the conversion from micromoles per liter to micromoles per kilogram.

    Data Type: NUTs
    Action: Data Question: what are units?
    Note:
    I am a PI of nutrients analysis on R/V Mirai BEAGLE cruise in 2003-2004 which revisited P06, A10, I03 and I04.  I saw the temporal variation of nutrients on these regions, then I found a large decrease of nutrients concentration in the Pacific sector. It reminds me of a part of the cruise report as shown below. 
    
    I wonder that the concentration is stated in the unit of micro mol per kilogram in the data file.  However, the data originator may have submitted in micro mol per liter and nobody converted them to micro mol per kilogram. If so, the big difference I found becomes relatively reasonable because P06 data becomes ca. 1/1.026. 
    
    Can you be track the nutrients data from the beginning? Do you have the paper version of data of P06? Or, would you let me know contact address of  Dr. Joe Jennings who was a PI of nutrients data on P06?

    Data Type: He/Tr/TCO2/PCO2
    Action: Website Updated:
    Note:
    tritum, helium, delhe3, tcarbn, pco2
    
    Merged Tritium, TCarbon, and PCO2 into web bottle file. Made some Helium data corrections and described some unresolved data problems.
    
    Notes on P06E merging     May 16, 2002    D. Muus
    
    1. Merged Tritium from: 
    http://www.soc.soton.ac.uk/soes/staff/wjj/p06trits.txt
    
    And  TCARBN, PCO2 and PCO2TMP from:
    http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov/ftp/ndp077/p6e.dat
        
    into bottle file from web (20010925WHPOSIODM)
    (Missing value indicators changed from -999.9 to -9.0.)
    
    2. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all merged values. 
    
    3. Tritium merge "Bottle" # in data set to SAMPNO in WOCE bottle file.
    
    4. Added Station 3 data per Lynne Talley and Bob Key. Original documentation says Sta 3 was test cast for backup CTD #9 and ctd data not processed. But C14 samples taken and analyzed so data are included. 
    
    5. Changed Station 63, Cast 1  HELIUM from  1.9920 to  -9.0000 
    DELHE3 from 24.71  to -999.00
    HELIER from  0.0040 to  -9.0000
    DELHER from  0.15  to   -9.00 
    and HELIUM & DELHE3 quality flags 1 & 2 from 2 to 9.
    Value from deepest bottle on Station 62 had been used for all  samples on Station 63, but no samples had been collected from Station 63 per Bill Jenkins and Lynne Talley(msg Oct 31. 2001)
    
    6. Per Lynne Talley message of May 9, 2002, Subj: p6 helium.
    HELIUM changed from 0.0000 to   -9.0000,  
    DELHE3 changed from 0.00   to -999.00,    
    DELHER changed from  .15   to   -9.00 and 
    quality flags changed from 2 to 9 on following samples:

              24    Sal, Oxy & Nuts ok; CFC, Trit, Tcarb look like deep samples. Trit pressure given as 4085 vs. 604db
               23    Trit different level than other data.  
               22    Smooth Sal, Oxy, Nuts, bump in He & Neon, may be ok.
       	      21    Sal, Oxy & Nuts same as SMP 21 at 803.7db, other samples different.

  • Some wrong values online William Jenkins

    Date: 2002-05-09
    Data Type: He/Tr
    Action: Update Needed:
    Note:
    I'm looking at the data that is on the WHPO web site (at least a version of it that was on there earlier this year, please let me know if this is ok). I'm finding that there seems to be data in the file that actually shouldn't be there. I believe these were failed analyses that somehow got included in my data submission, whenever that was. For that, I apologize!
    
    Fortunately, these spurious data points have a clear signature: they have a zero (and hence unphysical) helium concentration value. Thus any delhe3 would naturally be undefined anyway. You can eliminate these points by selecting only those delhe3 values that have non-zero helium.
    
    Unfortunately, there is a bunch of them (45 to be exact). Below is a list of the spurious points :

  • Values low, flag "2"? Lynne Talley

    Date: 2002-04-03
    Data Type: TCARBN
    Action: Data Question:
    Note:
    Alex, Dave and others:
    
    We are doing the last checks on the P6 sections, and have found a bullseye in total carbon at the following sample from P06E:
    
    12       1      28 02-9545   250.9  9.5478 34.5545    30.5  9.5196 34.2819
    229.7    2.65    5.06    0.09    0.81  -9.000  -9.000  -9.000 -9.0000
    -999.00  -9.000 -9.0000   -9.00  -999.0    -9.0  2054.1  -9.000  -9.000
    -999.0    -9.0 322444444999999299 32244444499999929
    
    So someone flagged the bottle itself as questionable, and nutrients were then flagged as bad, but for some reason, bottle salinity, oxygen and total carbon have been given flags of 2.  The TCARBN value at this bottle is quite low compared with the adjacent bottles.  I haven't checked the CTD salinity profile to see if it's terribly contorted here, so that the sample
    might actually be OK.
    
    We are going to remove it from the vertical section since the bottle quality is 3.  However, is this what you want us to do?  And if so, then the value should be flagged in the online data set.

    Data Type: NITRIT
    Action: Update Needed
    Note:
    I pulled the stripcharts for the P6 stations that Lynne had questions about.  We did, indeed, have some problems with wandering baselines at a few stations and what appears to be a consistent leaking bottle at several others. The apparently leaking Niskin #24 was located at a depth at which there was a strong gradient in the other nutrients, so the leak is not readily apparent except as a persistent small nitrite peak at ca 1000 - 1200 db.
    
    Station(s)		   	    Problem
    101, 103, 104			Non-linear baseline meander
    
    150, 154 - 159    Small real NO2 peak, always at Niskin 24 at 1000 - 1200 db (36 bottle rosette)
    
    167	                    Bottle 24 definitely a leaker. Other nitrite values from bottles 22 - 36 affected by a baseline meander.
    
    193	                    This high nitrite was due to a fluke computer problem. The value should be 0.003 vs 0.32.  (Don't know if it's better to flag or change this datum.)
    
    I would agree with Lynne that she should "zero them out" for the purposes of her plot(s), and we should ask her to flag them in the WHPO data set.

    Note:
    I was looking at Jane Dunworth-Baker's Aug 29, 2001, message and her comment "sta 156 salt at 3db should be 35.5652" appears to be referring to CTD data not Bottle data.
    
    The shallowest bottle on 156 is 23.7db. CTD salt at 3db is now 38.5652.
    
    So this will be a correction not connected with the anticipated CFC merging.

  • SUM file contains suspicious longitudes., see note: James Swift

    Date: 2001-08-28
    Data Type: SUM
    Action: Update Needed
    Note:
    I was looking through the P06E .sum file and found a couple of suspicious longitudes.
    
    1.  Station 7.  The present .sum records for Stations 6-8:
    
    316N138_3  P06E       6       1  ROS 050492 2107   BE  32 30.01 S  71 49.97 W
    316N138_3  P06E       6       1  ROS 050492 2157   BO  32 30.34 S  71 50.14 W
    316N138_3  P06E       7       1  ROS 050592 0108   BE  32 29.45 S  71 59.91 W
    316N138_3  P06E       7       1  ROS 050592 0200   BO  32 29.58 S  71 01.22 W
    316N138_3  P06E       8       1  ROS 050592 0558   BE  32 29.95 S  72 10.29 W
    316N138_3  P06E       8       1  ROS 050592 0653   BO  32 29.83 S  72 11.18 W
    
    The corrected Station 7 "BO" almost certainly should be:
    316N138_3  P06E       7       1  ROS 050592 0200   BO  32 29.58 S  72 01.22 W
    
    Please verify that.
    
    2.  Station 32.  The suspect erroneous longitude record is more subtle than for Station 7.  But I think Station 32 has one or more longitude errors. Here is the present version:
    
    316N138_3  P06E      31       1  ROS 051292 1604   BE  32 29.83 S  85 20.03 W
    316N138_3  P06E      31       1  ROS 051292 1720   BO  32 30.18 S  85 19.99 W
    316N138_3  P06E      32       1  ROS 051292 2258   BE  32 29.79 S  86 19.73 W
    316N138_3  P06E      32       1  ROS 051392 0002   BO  32 30.06 S  86 33.00 W
    316N138_3  P06E      33       1  ROS 051392 0520   BE  32 30.02 S  86 40.00 W
    316N138_3  P06E      33       1  ROS 051392 0634   BO  32 30.81 S  86 40.38 W
    
    I cannot tell for certain what the error is, but I think there is one. Can you please check the navigation files and advise? The WHPO will make the necessary changes to the .sum file (& WHP-Exchange files) on receipt of your reply.

Also, the Key data file header reports the file format is station, cast, bottle....; This format does not match the bottle file format.  C14 data was merged as station, cast, sample....
    
    Specific notes on p06e: Some c14 data existed in the hyd file before merging. This data matched the data to be merged (except it wasn't a complete data set, only partial).  Data existed on stations 17,24,44,54,69.Merged new data over existing data.

  • only half the data submitted Robert Key

    Date: 2000-05-10
    Data Type: DELC14
    Action: Update Needed
    Note:
    The C-14 section captures most of the features for P6, however, I think that you only have about half the data. The details of how this could happen are too long to worry about, but it is probably my fault. I have attached an ascii file with all of the results.
    
    One problem is that the current hydro file at WHPO does not include data for station 3. Early versions of the sea file included stations 1-3, but these locations were re-sampled and subsequently 1-3 declared "test". As early as 1995 I lobbied to get station 3 data added back into the official files, and it was for awhile. When the far eastern portion of the secion was re-sampled, some of the tracers which had been sampled originally were not re-collected. The reasons varied. With respect to C-14, cutting station 3 is equivalent to discarding ~10K worth of analyses and it creates a very important hole in the section. The problem is less severe (due to sampling density) for carbon parameters, but it exists. I do not know the whether or not H-3 was collected on any of station 1-3.
    
    I found no glaring problems with the bottle data from station 3 and think that the C-14 data alone justifies keeping this station in the official WOCE data file.
    
    When the section is remade, it is important that the contour labels be attached to the C-14 minimum around 2300m at the eastern end of the section. The fact that the minimum is segregated into eastern and western lobes is one of the most important results from the deep Pacific radiocarbon program. I also believe that the deep/abyssal relative max around 102W is real and probably indicative of a weak western boundary flow along the flank of the ridge.
    
    WHPO: I have ftp'ed a copy of the attached file to your INCOMING directory
    called P6-C-14.dat

    My name is Danie Bartolacci, and I'm a programmer/analyst working for both theWHPO and Lynne Talley.  I'm trying to track down information about C-13 measurements taken for some WOCE Pacific lines.  I've recently corresponded with Bob Key who directed me to you.
    
    My understanding from Bob is that processing of C-13 for these lines is finished.  Is it possible to obtain the data and/or an update on their status  for the following cruise lines?  Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated!  Thank you for your time!
