I just put 2 docs for the ATAS cruises in my whpo directory: /home/jkappa/public_html/ATAS_1982 TAS cruise report.pdf /home/jkappa/public_html/ATAS_1981 NAS cruise report.pdf They can go online right away. They are just scans of the original hard copy. Kimberly is typing them, since we both decided that would be faster/easier than trying to use the OCR software in this case. Once typed, I will make a better set of PDF and text files.
NAS Leg1 notes Original bottle data from CDIAC website Feb 10, 2006. http://cdiac.ornl.gov/oceans/datmet.html TTO_1981_recalc_DIC_ALK.csv Contains pressure, temperature, salinity, nutrients, alkalinity and total carbon. No machine readable data available from SIO/ODF. Helium tritium merge file: nas_he3-tu.orig.Z from WHOI P.I.: W.J. Jenkins Received from J.L.Reid office Jan 19, 2006. Added missing NB 69 from PACODF data report SIO Ref. #86-15 Tritium merge file: nas1-7.c14.orig.Z Believed to be from Univ. of Miami; P.I.: H.G Ostlund Received from J.L.Reid office Jan 19, 2006. No Miami rosette sample data for Leg 1. Notes for Leg1: Temperature for Station 2, sample 101, 14db is Reversing Thermometer not CTD temperature and and appears 3 deg low. Original CTD data from NODC Mar 8, 2006 ocldb1141845224.17339.CTD.csv.gz Low Temperature and Salinity on Station 2 above 120db are as shown in NODC data. Left as is.
WHOI Helium Isotope Lab Data Release #3.0 August 31, 1989 Tritium and 3He from TTO-NAS and NATS 1981 Dear Colleague, The files on this disk (TTO.DAT and NAT.DAT) are a listing of tritium, helium and hydrographic data taken on two expeditions which took place in the summer of 1981. The TTO North Atlantic Survey took place on the KNORR on seven legs with a variety of chief scientists (see the data report published by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, ref SIO No. 86-15). The NATS (North Atlantic Tracer Section) data (AT-109, legs 1-3) were taken with C.Wunsch, H.Stommel and D.Roemmich as chief scientists. We are indebted to all for their help. This work was supported by the National Science Foundation, grants No. OCE79-21378 and OCE81-17998. You are free to use this data as you see fit, but an acknowledgement of its source would be appreciated in any resulting publications. There are a total of 3235 tritium and 2893 helium measurements. The data are organized as simple ascii files with two kinds of records in a repeating pattern: a station header record, followed by a number of depth records. Ancillary hydrographic information is included for your convenience only, and we make no claim as to its accuracy. Cast and bottle numbers are included to permit referencing the actual hydrographic data released by the PACODF group. We present the helium-3 data in two "units" for use at your own discretion. Null values are indicated as -99. We have made every attempt to ensure that there are no errors in the data (eg due to mis-labelling), but if you find any "fliers", please notify us (telemail W.Jenkins) of the cast and bottle number and what the problem appears to be, and we will investigate. Don't forget to include the data release number. The data can be read by the following fortran statements (contained in the file "test.for"): open(unit=3,file='TTO.DAT',status='old') 100 read(3,110,end=300)ista,ndeps,stalat,stalon,id,im,iy 110 format(2i3,2f8.3,3i3) do 200 i=1,ndeps read(3,120)icast,ibott,pres,temp,salt,oxy,trit,sigt,he3,del3,che 120 format(2i2,f6.0,2f8.3,f5.0,3f7.2,f7.1,f7.2) 200 continue go to 100 c c ................................. c 300 close(unit=3) c c The program test.for has been succesfully used under both SUN OS v4.0 and Microsoft (MSDOS) v5.0 fortran compilers.
