    -As per Bob Key's email of 2010.04.30, PPM was changed to UATM.
    -Jim Swift confirmed split of original bottle file into two legs.
    -Generated netcdf files and checked in JOA.  Zipped files into
    The notes below apply to all formatting and splitting of the original 
    ajax_316N19831007 bottle file.
    Leg one has been placed online.  Notes file sent to Jerry.

    Reformatting notes for the ajax_316N19831007 bottle file.
    This file was obtained from CDIAC, originally submitted to
    CDIAC by Bob Key.  Original file named 316N19831007.exc.csv
    This file contained both legs and was originally reformatted
    as one file.  However, since the cruise was marked by over a
    month between legs, the files were split into two cruises.
    leg 1:  ajax_316N19831007
    leg 2:  ajax_316N19940111
    This directory contains leg 1, which was subsequently split
    off of the originally formatted file containing both legs.
    At this time, it is unclear which file scheme should go online, 
    until resolved, the original file will remain (both legs).
    Following edits were made to parameter and units headers:
    - DBARS to DBAR
    - DEGC to DEG C
    -PCO2_TMP to PCO2TMP
    *NOTE:  PCO2 currently has units of PPM.  CCHDO accepted units
    are UATM.  Units will stand at this time but will be brought
    to Bob's and Alex's attention for clarification.
    New parameter RA-8/6 and RA-8/6E were added to the parameter 
    list in order to format check and re-order the file.  This
    parameter is RA 228/226 Ratio and error, W. Moore is PI.
    File was re-ordered using copy_bottle_data.rb 
    Name/date stamp was added.
    Edited file named ajax_316N19831007_hy1.csv
    File was visually checked with JOA. No netcdf files were 
    generated at this time.  WOCE formatted 
    file was generated using exchange_to_wocebot.rb.  File was 
    visual inspected for format errors and placed online.  WOCE

  • Split data files into 2 cruises Steve Diggs

    Just talked to Jim, and since there's a cruise in between the two AJAX legs, it's a definite "split".  
    So please split-up the one file from CARINA into two files/cruises.

    Grabbed the file below and crunched it through over here.  One
    thing- PCO2 has units of PPM (my brain reads part per million) and
    not UATM, but I'm not a chemist.  Are those units correct?
    Thanks! -Danie
    Oh yeah, you and Alex both treat the AJAX expedition as one cruise
    (Knorr 11/5), but we have it under two separate expos.  I've just
    asked Jim if we should be splitting, but was there a reason you kept
    it as one file/cruise?  Leg 1 ended in Nov and leg 2 doesn't start
    til Jan...
