    1. Replaced 1-decimal-place DELC13 in p14chy.txt (20011003WHPOSIODM) with 2-decimal-place DELC13 from:
    2. Modified sumfile (p14csu.txt) parameter column by adding neon (17) and delc13 (13) where appropriate. Deleted 10 (Helium) and 11 (delhe3) from Station 5 parameter entry.

    2. Replaced sumfile with new ODF sumfile. Added parameter numbers to match Sample Log except for CO2 samples which were not reported.  C13 not on Sample Log but data values are in bottle file and appear to correspond to C14.
    3. Replaced CTD data files with Revised ODF CTD files with corrected temperatures from:
    /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p14c/p14cctd.zip Changed file names from ssscc.ctd to p14c0sss.wct for Cast 1 to p14c0sss.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.
    5. Checked new data files with Java Ocean Atlas.

  • Processing error corrected, revised data available by ftp Mary Johnson

    Date: 2001-06-20
    Data Type: CTD
    Action: Data Update:
    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 Type: TRITUM
    Action: Data are Public
    It was brought to my attention that the WOCE Pacific/Indian He-Tr data was  not as yet made public. After submitting it to you last year, I had intended on going through it one more time to ensure there were no problems with it. Unfortunately, I have not had the time to do this. Is it possible, therefore, to release it as public data, and if there are any subsequent minor revisions, to make changes? I suspect there might be a few samples in the set that might have got through our initial quality control.

    Today I uploaded C-14 data and the final C-14 data report for WOCE Pacific leg P14C. The report was sent in 3 different formats: FrameMaker document file, MIF, and a postscript version.  If you can not use any of these formats, I can translate to wordperfect with some minor losses. The data was sent as comma separated, flat ascii and includes only station, cast, bottle, c14, c14error and c14flag. This leg is now "final" with respect to C-14. The preliminary data report for these numbers was issued 7/28/97, so the official release data for these values will be 7/28/99 unless published prior to that date.
