Replaced DELC13 decimal-1-data with decimal-2-data from same original data files. Notes on P16A/P17A Mar 10, 2003 D. Muus 1. Replaced 1-decimal-place DELC13 in p16ahy.txt (20021112WHPOSIODM) with 2-decimal-place DELC13 from: for Stations 6 - 70 (P16A): p16a_c13.dat2 originally obtained from Bob Key ftp site: email@example.com but no longer available. p16a_c13.dat2 now available in: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p16/p16a/original/ 2003.03.10_P16A.P17A_C13_REMERGE_MUUS/p16a_c13.dat2 for Stations 73 - 125 (P17A): /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/original/ 20010206_C13_P17_STUART.email 2. Both QUALT1 and QUALT2 set to QC value given in original data file. 3. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 4. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
Replaced CO2 data received in 1998 with CO2 data from currect CDIAC website. Notes on P16A merging: 1. Lynne Talley reported questionable TCARBN data in Station 34 bottle file. The CDIAC website has the same data for Sta 34 but matched to different pressures for TCARBN, PCO2 and PCO2TMP. 2. Merged TCARBN, PCO2 and PCO2TMP values from: http://cdiac.ornl.gov/ftp/ndp065/p16ap17a.dat into bottle file (20020806WHPOSIODM) 3. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all newly merged data. 4. Checked new exchange file with Java Ocean Atlas.
*See THETA entry.
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. Details in notes file sent to Jerry. Notes on P16A/P17A merging: 1. Merged P16A/P17A CTDTMP and THETA from ODF Revised Temperature file: /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p16ap17a/p16ap17ahyd.zip into bottle file (p16ahy.txt 20020613WHPOSIOSA) 2. Replaced CTD data files with Revised ODF CTD files with corrected temperatures from: /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p16ap17a/p16ap17actd.zip. Changed file names from ssscc.ctd to p16a_0sss.wct for Cast 1 to p16a_0sss.2.wct for Cast 2 to p16a_0sss.3.wct for Cast 3 to p16a_0sss.4.wct for Cast 4 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 p16a, p17a and x. The "x" in the sumfile represent stations done off the regular woce lines. CTD exchange files were renamed to p16a and p17a in place of "x" so stations would remain 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.
Checked format of lvs file p16a17lv.c14 found in p16a/original/COMPARE_C14/LARGE_VOLUME. Made minor adjustments, corrected first header, added date, whp-id, and timestamp. This file need to be linked to web site.
Large Volume Sample data was linked to website.
Minor reformatting of .lvs file p16a17lv.c14 found in p16a/original/COMPARE_C14/LARGE_VOLUME. File needs to be linked. Here are my notes for the p16ap17a .lvs formatting. Checked format, corrected first header, added date, whp-id, and time stamp
we only have two data points from this station. i agree that the second value (0.011) is high in comparison to all the other values from this depth range. we probably should flag it as 'questionable' data point.
Peter - thanks - OK, will flag it as questionable. But the value in the WHPO file is 0.112 (not 0.011 as in your email) - (station 81, bottle 24) - I'll double check this against the original submission as well.
*See DELC13 entry.
Remerged DELC14 and C14ERR into previous online file (20020502WHPOSIODM) since I noticed that I had made a mistake and put a QUALT1 and QUALT2 flag for C14ERR. There was not Q1 or Q2 flag in the original file from Key. After remerging I changed the Q2 flags that are set to 1 by the merging program to be the same as the Q1 flags. Merged the DELC13 for P16A only since Dave Muus had already merged the DELC13 data for P17A. The DELC13 data was retrieved from Bob Key's ftp site in May of 2001. Merging notes: Noticed that when I merged the DELC14 and C14ERR I had made a mistake and put a QUALT1 and QUALT2 flag for C14ERR. There was no Q1 or Q2 flag in the original file from Key. I remerged these two parameters and changed the Q2 flags that were set to 1 by the merging program for DELC14 to the same as the Q1 flag. Merged the DELC13 for P16A only since Dave Muus had already merged the DELC13 data for P17A. The DELC13 was retrieved from Bob Key's ftp site in May of 2001. Put new file online and made new exchange file. Put file online and made new exchange file.
I'm still trying to figure out what happened with tritium on P17A: Station 81, bottle 22, 1807 dbar: 0.009 (probably fine - zero within error?) Station 81, bottle 24, 2210 dbar: 0.112 - high As mentioned in the previous email, I think you can access the website now, and the ftp site is an even surer bet. Can anyone help?
Merged DELC14 and C14ERR from file p16a17a.c14 sent by Bob Key, found in web site: /p16/p16a/original/COMPARE_C14 into online file p16ahy.txt (20020502WHPOSIOSM).
P17A DELC13 merged into bottle file and put on line together with new exchange file. Notes on P16A/P17A merging May 2, 2002 D.Muus 1. Merged P17A DELC13 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/original/20010206_C13_P17_STUART.email into bottle file (20020410WHPOSIODM) 2. Only sample reference in C13 data file is station, cast and niskin. SAMPNO appears same as BTLNBR in bottle file so no apparent problem. 3. No DELC13 data for the P16A stations. 4. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 5. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
Merged Jenkins WHOI tritium into bottle file and put on-line. Changed 15 WHOI HELIUM and DELHE3 samples from 0.0000 and 0.00 to -9.0000 and -999.00 and quality flags to 5s. See notes file for details. Notes on P16A/P17A merging April 10, 2002 D. Muus 1. Merged Tritium and Tritium error from: http://www.soes.soton.ac.uk/staff/wjj/p16atrits.txt http://www.soes.soton.ac.uk/staff/wjj/p17atrits.txt into current web bottle file (20020408WHPOSIODM). 2. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all merged values. 3. Fifteen of the Helium and DelHe3 samples have values of 0.0000 and 0.00 with quality flags 2. Adjacent values indicate these are errors. Sta 3 Ca 1 Smp 1 Pres 14.8 3 1 9 308.5 14 2 7 209.0 14 2 12 508.2 18 1 23 2147.9 22 1 16 101.2 26 1 1 3.8 26 1 20 1044.9 87 2 1 3.8 87 2 20 1404.9 99 1 18 1718.3 103 1 17 1261.4 107 1 18 995.5 111 1 5 109.6 115 1 5 132.2 Bill Jenkins message of April 10, 2002, says these values had processing problems and are not reported. Changed values from 0.0000 and 0.00 to -9.0000 and -999.00 and changed quality flags to "5"s. 4. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 5. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
Changed QUALT2 flags for 15 WHOI HELIUM and DELHE3 samples from 2 to 3 because values are zero. New WHOI tritium data are incomplete so not merged. Notes on P16A/P17A merging April 8, 2002 D. Muus 1. Merged Helium, DelHe3 and Tritium from: comma-separated_value file attached to Bob Newton message 14:59:05 PST, Mar 14, 2002 into current web bottle file (20011024WHPOSIODM). 2. QUALT2 same as QUALT1 for all merged values. 3. Original file had two tritium values for Sta 48, Ca 2, Sample 12 at 8.1db: -0.111 error 0.011 flag 4 0.009 0.003 2 Hand edited bottle file to use second value. 4. Jenkins WHOI tritium available on U. of Southhampton web site: http://www.soes.soton.ac.uk/staff/wjj/p16atrits.txt but only includes stations 3, 6, 10 14, 18, 22 & 26. Original WHOI helium/tritium data file: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p16/p16a/original/1997/juno1.trt (dated: 12-AUG-1996 15:54:52:00 in files.doc file) contained data for stations 87, 91, 95, 99, 103, 107, 111, 115, 119, 122 & 125 in addition to the above. Fifteen of the Helium and DelHe3 samples have values of 0.0000 and 0.00 with quality flags 2. Adjacent values indicate these are errors.

Will wait for complete data set. But did change QUALT2 flags for the 15 "zero" Helium and DelHe3 from 2 to 3 to indicate problem. 5. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 6. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
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. The stations missing an ID were filled in with knorr92.
Merged July 2001 CFCs into bottle file and placed new woce format and exchange format files on web. Made minor modification to Summary file. Changed Quality Code 1 to 9 where appropriate. Notes on P16A CFC merging Oct 24, 2001. 1. New CFC-11 and CFC-12 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p16/p16a/original/20010709_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER_P16AP17A 20010709.174019_WISEGARVER_P16AP17A_p16a_CFC_DQE.dat merged into SEA file from web Oct 24, 2001. (20010403WHPOSIOKJU) Changed all quality code "1"s to "9" in QUALT1 and copied QUALT1 to QUALT2 prior to merging. 2. Added left-justified "x"s to Summary File WOCE SECT for Stations 1-2, 54-72 and 120-127 to give proper column count. 3. Exchange file checked using Java Ocean Atlas.
I have moved the updated CFC's from Wisegarver into the original subdirectory for p16a in: ..../pacific/p16/p16a/original/20010709_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER_P16AP17A data are ready for merging.
edited header line from CDEPTH to DEPTH (COR) was included in the header line above DEPTH. new date/name stamp was entered in file.
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.

An oceanographically-insignificant error in CTDTMP data for this cruise has been found (ca. -0.00024*T - 0.00036 degC). A data update is forthcoming. In the interim the corrected data files can be obtained from: ftp://odf.ucsd.edu/pub/HydroData/woce/crs
following up on bill jenkins's message, i would like to ask you to make public all ldeo woce tritium/he data that have been submitted to you. because the tritium/he community has not yet finished the final calibration of the data, i might have to apply minor corrections to these data once the intercal. effort has been completed. our acce work was funded over a 5-year period that ended in 2000. consequently, this data set is further behind in quality control before submission, but i expect that we will get these data ready soon. SR3 was never funded in a 'regular' fashion, but i used noaa corc funds to keep the measurements of this sample set moving. i expect to finish the analyses this summer and submit them in fall.
2000.12.11 KJU File contained here is a CRUISE SUMMARY and NOT sumfile. Documentation is online. 2000.10.11 KJU Files were found in incoming directory under whp_reports. This directory was zipped, files were separated and placed under proper cruise. All of them are sum files. Received 1997 August 15th.
Merged PCO2TMP data from 1998.03.13_P16A_CO2_XXX subdir into hyd file. Updated hyd file is on-line.
Bottle: (helium, delhe3, neon, helier, delher, neoner) Merged HELIUM, HELIER, DELHE3, DELHER, NEON, and NEONER from Hohmann/Schlosser into hyd file. Updated file is on line. Merging notes in original subdir 2000.03.10_P16A_HE_NE_HOHMANN.
Thanks for your correction. Apparently this sample was read incorrectly into our database. Sample 0326, which I reported as station 72, cast 1, bottle 36, was taken at Station 77! My apologies!

Bottle: (tcarbn, pco2) Merged TCARBN and PCO2 for p16a/p17a. Updated hyd file is on line. Merging notes in p16a original subdir 1998.03.13_P16A_CO2_XXX.
Bottle: (tritum, helium, delhe3) Remerged tritium data into hyd file. Previously merged data had incorrect quality flags. See notes in subdir original/HYD_REMERGE. Merged helium data from L.Evans into correct hyd file. Updated hyd file put on-line. 2000.09.07 SRA >>>> HAD TO REPLACE PREVIOUSLY MERGED DATA FILE (2000.08.31).<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< There were errors in the tritium data flags that had been merged prior to WHPOSIO work on the hyd file. See README notes in original subdir HYD_REMERGE. The tritium problem was corrected, then the Evans helium data was remerged into the corrected hyd file. This corrected file, without the EVANS helium data is in the original subdir called p16ahy_rplcd_2000.09.07.txt. NOTE: there was some preexisting helium data in this file that came from the ....1997/juno1.trt file. Run time formats and file naming convention remains as previosly stated.
Bottle: (helium, delhe3) Merged %deltaHe and molal[He] data into BTL file. Merging notes are in original subdir 1999.10.08_P16A_HE_LUPTON-EVANS. 2000.08.31 SRA Merged 2 helium data files into BTL file. **Note: some helium data already exsist in current BTL file. Not sure where it came from. However, data in two files to be merge will not overwrite any existing helium data (different stations). I am a little suspicious of some helium values that existed in BTL file. There are several instances of %deltaHe = 000.00 (flag 2), and molal[He] = 0.0000 (flag 1). Possible these were bad merges? Should values be -999.00 and -9.000 and flagged 5? p16ahe_edt.dat: copied p16awoce.csv.txt into this file and edited to prepare for merging. Substituted spaces for column delimiting ','s.

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.)
I have placed updated data file for HE and DELHE3 for both p16a and p17a in "original" subdirectory for p16A. Two files both need merging into current bottle file.
As of 3/2000 the 2 year clock expired on the last of the Pacific Ocean C14 data (P10). All Pacific Ocean WOCE C-14 data should be made public.

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.
