Notes for P17N C13 merge: "New DELC13 data received from Bob Key May 15, 2007: 20070515.070948_P17N_Key,_Bob/mergedP17NC13.csv /mergedP17NC13.csv.Readme was merged into existing CCHDO web WOCE format bottle data. New exchange and NetCDF files also made. Quality flag for Station 64 Bottle 21 (1285.1db) was changed from 2 to 4 per Bob Key May 17, 2007 email. C13 for this cruise measured by Paul Quay (deep) and NOSAMS (shallow and matching C14 samples). The attached file contains the merged results. Two samples were measured by both groups. For these 2 the results were averaged and the flag reset to 6. One additional flag has been reset to 3. Quay and McNichol advised of these actions."

Merged CFC-11 and CFC-12 into web bottle file. Put new WOCE format and exchange format bottle files online. Details in "notes." Notes on P17N Mar 25, 2003 D. Muus 1. Merged CFCs from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/p17n/original/ 2001.07.09_P17N_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER/20010709.180418_WISEGARVER_P17N/ 20010709.180418_WISEGARVER_P17N_p17n_CFC_DQE.dat into web bottle file (20030307WHPOSIODM) 2. Made new exchange file for Bottle data. 3. Checked new bottle file with Java Ocean Atlas.
Replaced DELC13 decimal-1-data with decimal-2-data from same original data file. Notes on P17N Mar 7, 2003 D. Muus 1. Replaced 1-decimal-place DELC13 in p17nhy.txt (20021016WHPOSIOSA) with 2-decimal-place DELC13 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/original/ 20010206_C13_P17_STUART.email 2.

New PDF and text docs online.
Corrected Station 28 Cast 3 Latitude from 35 deg N to 34 deg N for WOCE format Summary file.
As noted by SE, the second line of the headers was an extra line, only an * in column 1. I deleted that line. The exchange file does not appear to have been affected by this extra line, so I did not make a new exchange file.
Sumfile was converted to WOCE format with the best of our abilities from the French language version that was submitted. Sumfile data was checked in JOA using the newly formatted CTDs and no problems were apparent. CTD were converted to exchange, netcdf and inventory file are now online.
I have reviewed the ODF sample log sheets for a random selection of stations in the intervals 100-120 and 149-203 from the cruise in question and can see that at the least S, O2, and nutrients were done, and I uncovered some CFCs and even one AMS 14C station. So there are, somewhere (at ODF presumably, and perhaps at NODC) bottle data for every one of the stations occupied during the cruise that covered P17N. But a decision was made somewhere along the line to leave the non-WHP stations out of the WHPO data file. For one thing, as you note, the non-WHP stations from that cruise did not receive full quality control. This is going to get into one of those data gray areas. My own preference would be to archive the complete cruise, and simply note in the documentation that stations 100-120 and 149-203 are not WOCE stations. I do not like to see data lost. For the non-WOCE stations we can put in whatever the quality code is that means no quality code was assigned, right? I have copied this to Dave Musgrave, Rana Fine, and Kristin Sanborn to see what words of wisdom they choose to impart.
Merged missing Non-WOCE station data (stations 100-120, 149-202) into current bottle file. Recreated exchange, netCDF and inventory files. Notes: I have merged the Non-WOCE stations for P17N into the current online file. 325021_1.xtr- New stations file obtained from odf. Contains stations 100-120, 149-202. Because these stations only contained S/O, nutrients and a Q1 word, appropriate missing values were added to columns of missing parameters before stations were merged into online bottle file. Q1 word was also copied to Q2 word and added missing value flags added prior to merging. Ran wocecvt with no errors. Copied p17nhy_edt.txt to parent directory and renamed p17nhy.txt. Recreated exchange, netCDF, and inventory files. Moved all previous versions of these files to original directory and RCS'd the action.
Made new CTD zip file from revised ODF files with corrected temperatures. Changed file names from sss0c.ctd to p17n.0sss.c.wct to conform to woce format. (sss=station, c=cast) Made new CTD exchange format zip file using modified sumfile to keep all stations in chronological order. (WOCE SECT: shelf, sound & eddy changed to P17N.) Checked new CTD exchange files with Java Ocean Atlas.
Merges DELC14, C14ERR, DELC13, and C13ERR values I got from Bob Key into p17n_lvs.txt file that was in p17n/original. This file needs to be linked to the web site.
Large volume samples data has been linked to website.
Merges DELC14, C14ERR, DELC13, and C13ERR values I got from Bob Key into p17n_lvs.txt file that was in p17n/original. This file needs to be linked to the web site.
Created new exchange file for the ctd data. Had to make a temporary change to the .sum file, stas. 100-120 had shelf for WOCE SECT, stas. 149-187 had sound for WOCE SECT, and stas. 188-202 had eddy for WOCE SECT. Changed these to P17N only for the purpose of making the exchange file.
SE noted that files 10001.WCT through 12001.WCT had 5 in the last character of all headers. I corrected this. On further investigation I noted that files 14901.WCT through 18701.WCT had the same problem. I corrected those files
Changed QUALT1 and QUALT2 flags for TCARBN on station 34 for depths deeper than 800db, except for the deepest at 5338.7db to 3, per e-mail from LynneTalley, Alex Kozyr, Bob Key, and Chris Sabine.
We'll delete the values from the section and check on the flags in general on that station. Just looked and they are not flagged on the WHPO version. We will change the flags to 3 and repost on the WHP website.
Changed QUALT1 flags for TCARBN on station 34 per Lynne Talley
We're plotting P17 for the WHP atlas now. On the total carbon plot, station 34 on P17N seems to be quite high compared with surrounding stations. Can you take a look at it and let me know if what we see is correct? (It's the station at about 37N, 12200 km.)
Bob and Chris also think that P17N Station 34, all of the TCO2 values deeper than 800dB (except the deepest at 5338.7 dB), flagged 3.
Changed QUALT1 flags for TCARBN on station 34.
In the "hy" file, stations 100 to 120 are missing. They are in the sum file, and the sum file indicates there should be bottle data for 1-6 ( ie silcat, oxygen, nitrit...).
(ctdtmp, ctdsal, theta, delc13 Merged ODF revised temperature data and delc13 into web bottle file. Corrected SUM file. Notes on P17N merging May 15, 2002 D.Muus 1. Corrected CRUISE DATES in first line of bottle file from "052684 TO 062693" to "051593 TO 062693" Corrected DATES in first line of SUMMARY file from "051693-062293" to "051593-062693" 2. Changed "TRITIUM" to "TRITUM" in bottle file header. 3. Merged P17N DELC13 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/pacific/p17/original/20010206_C13_P17_STUART.email into bottle file (p17nhy.txt 20000921WHPOSIOSRA) Only sample reference in C13 data file is station, cast and niskin. SAMPNO appears same as BTLNBR in bottle file so no apparent problem. 4. Merged revised ODF bottle data from: /usr/export/ftp/pub/HydroData/woce/p17n/p17nhyd.zip into bottle file resulting from #3 above. 5. Changed QUALT2 from mostly "1"s and "9"s to same as QUALT1. Then changed QUALT2 flags in following samples from 2 to 3 per DQE: Sta 9 Ca 1 Smp 36 silicate 44 1 36 salinity 56 1 24 " 56 1 27 " 78 2 36 " This had already been done on 20000921WHPOSIOSRA in amongst the "1"s. 6. SUMMARY file from web fails woce format to exchange format conversion because of missing times in Station 92, Cast 1, BO and 99, 1, BO and missing WOCE SECT in Stations 100-120 and 149-202. Added missing times from ODF SUMMARY file in p17nhyd.zip. Added missing WOCE SECT for non-woce stations from description in ODF SUMMARY file.

Merged DELC14, C14ERR, DELC13, and C13ERR values I got from Bob Key into p17n_lvs.txt file that was on the whpo web site in: ...onetime/pacific/p17/p17n/original.
Attached are copies of files for P17N_LV. I've included various details which may not be worth saving on your end. The files contain both Gerard and piggyback Niskin data. If you run into a flag value of "0" in the first listed file, it indicates that the value was somehow estimated rather than being measured (generally interpolation using Rosette data as basis). P17N.LV: the sum+hydro file I use with all flags, etc. Note that the c13 in this (and all other LV files) is not research quality. It is only adequate for fractionation correction to the C14 samples. LV.bottle.notes.odf: what you'd expect 3250211.sum: old copy of sum file with LV info included 3250211.lvs: original hyd file I got from Jim's guys. This is one of the LV cruises I was not on, so I can't supply info from memory. With respect to file P17N.LV, notes from my records follow: Oxygen not measured, but add empty columns for O2 and aou for compatibility. Check ODF QC flags Changes: 10-1-43 sif to 4 10-1-44 sif to 4 10-1-83 sif to 4 10-3-89 sif to 4 68-1-43 tf flag 3 Corrected sum file for Station 28 cast 3 Latitude degrees should have been 34, not 35 as recorded. 5/23/96 Rcd File from Stuiver (P.J.

CTD has been converted to exchange using latest code and put online.
I have placed the updated CFC data file sent by Wisegarver into the P17N original directory in a subdirectory called 2001.07.09_P17N_CFC_UPDT_WISEGARVER This directory contains data, documentation and readme files. data are ready for merging
From: Zafer Top Steve: Yes, you did bug me before about this! All data should have been public since 1998, and if they haven't then they should be! From Steve Diggs: I was asked the following question regarding Roden's 1993 cruise from Fiji aboard the Thompson: "Steve, The table says P14N HeTr are still Non-Public and has both an encrypted file and a public bottle file. Data History has note from Zafer Top saying neon data is public (Aug 29, 2001) but can see no mention of Helium or Tritium. Do I need to merge the CFCs into both the Public and Non-Public Bottle files or is there chance that the data is now all public? Dave" So, are your He/Tr data for P14N public, or would you like for them to be held as encrypted data? Please let me know and sorry if we've bugged you about this before.
WISEGARVER, DAVID would like the data PUBLIC. And would like the following done to the data: MERGE CFC DATA Any additional notes are: CFC DATA ON SIO98 SCALE
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.

Remerged CFCs, Tritium, Helium, C14, TCARBN and ALKALI data and data flags into original hyd data file. These bottle data had to be remerged due to problems with data flags in the originally merged bottle data file. Complete documentation regarding remerge is in original subdir 2000.09.16_P17N_REMERGE.
**These data were merged into the original p17nhy.txt file that had bad data flags. This file was recreated, and these data were merged into the new file on Sept. 21,2000.

Remerged tritium/helium data. There are 3 existing files containing tritium data. 2 of theses files came with the data set from WHOI WHPO; they are p17trt.raw and p17n.trt. The data values and data formats are different (all for the same samples) in these 2 files. It was assumed that p17n.trt contained the most up-to-date data for the period when these files were submitted to WHOI WHPO. The data flags were confusing and incorrect; they could not be correlate with the data (e.g. which flags where associated with which parameters). Correspondence with Jane Dunworth Baker at WHOI confirmed there were problems with the data flags. Data was merged into the bottle file with SIOWHPO revised data flags: missing data was flagged '9', all other values submitted were assumed to be OK and flagged '2'. The third existing data file contained tritium data and was from Z. TOP (1997). This is assumed to be the most up-to-date version of all tritium data for the P17N leg. The data file contained no cast values or data flags. Cast values were generated according to the sample log sheet maintained by ODF (P17N) for tritium samples taken during this expedition. Flags were generated as stated above (2 for any reported data, missing data flagged as 9). 3. Remerged LUPTON-EVANS helium data and flags. This data was already reformatted in the *LUPTON-EVANS dir.

Moved from ftp-incoming to p17n original directory, the following files: p17n_sum.txt, p17nhy.txt, changes. These all refer to cfc merging completed by DMN. P17ncarb.txt contains carbon and alkalinity data that still needs merging into bottle file.

I've replaced the p17n sumfile with Dave Muus' corrected version.
A corrected version of p17nsu.txt is now in /usr/export/ftp/pub/WHPO/MUUS with the corrections described in my two May 17 emails. Dave
Steve, While working with P17N for a Jim Swift project I found an error in the .SUM file. Station 35 BE and BO latitude should be 37 degrees instead of 38 degrees. EN is ok.

This is a follow-up to last month's message requesting that all of our Pacific and Indian Ocean CFCs be made accessible to the public. Our cruises are; (Pacific) P17C, P1716S, P06E, P19C, P17N, P21E, and (Indian) I09N, I05W/I04, I07N, I10. I just ftp'd updated/final CFC data for our WOCE Pacific cruises; p17c, p1716s, p6e, p19c, p17n, p21e. There are 2 files for each cruise. The file with the extension '.sea' is the hydro file (from your website) with our final CFC values merged in. The file with the '.dat' extension is a file with stn, cast, samp, cfcs and cfc quality bytes.
I've replaced the p17n .sum file with Lynne's updated version (see below for changes made). I have also edited the file to change all slashes in expocodes to underscores, and I have edited the table to reflect the updated file.
I placed an edited version of p17nsu.txt in my ftp area on whpo. There was a column misalignment and mising information on lines 343 (station 92), picked up by Maggie Cook at WHOI. I corresponded with Dave Musgrave about it. Here is his answer. I inserted -9 in the two columns for which there is no information for station 92. I realigned the max wire out and max press columns.
Our console logs show That the deepest prressure that a bottle was trippedwas at 3743 db (before correcting for the deck reading which was about 18). The Uncorrected acoustic depth was 3543 m, which is close to the value at the beginning of the cast: 3532 m. The CTD cast file for st 92 shows a maximum pressure of 3722 db. There is a note on the console log that the down time was recorded a little late (the bottom bottle was tripped at 1620 and the downtime was recorded as 1625). Maybe they recorded the acoustic depths wrong. It looks like the acoustic depth is wrong. The max wire out was 3648 m. We would have to back to the PDR log to and see what the acoustic depth was at 1620 on 13June93. Dave
Maggie Cook at WHOI alerted me to very small errors in the headers in the sum files for p17n and p17e - the LATITUDE and LONGITUDE labels are 1 column too far to the left. I have fixed them and put them in the incoming for the WHPO. I also changed the date stamp on them, but if you think these changes are too minor, change those back. Lynne
Dr. Musgrave has changed the status of the bottle nutrients and ctd files to 'PUBLIC'. I have stripped out the following parameters and made the files (the new stripped files w/o CFC-11 CFC-12 TRITUM DELHE3 HELIUM TRITER DELHER HELIER) available on our website.
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.
