I was on the cruises that collected the KN04 and Iselin 1992-10 CTD data, and I can answer all your questions. The data is can also be found at anonymous ftp.whoi.edu cd /pub/users/rlimeburner/AABW/knorr1994/ctd and /pub/users/rlimeburner/AABW/iselin1992/ctd The ascii files are named *.prs and each has a header similar to Vessel: KN04-142-4 |Cruise #:4 | Sta.#:1 |Operator: DERMEVAL | Inst. #: IM01KN02 | Direct.: D | CAL Extn: C00 | Date: 30-MAY-1994 | St.Time: 20:02:48 | En.Time: 21:28:19 | St.Lat.:-1 :37:0.46 | En.Lat.:-1:37.276 | St.Long:-36 :2 :0.17 | En.Long:-36:02.333 | Depth:4202 Meters | Obs.: 80162 | Averover: 1 DBar |ScanRate: 15.625 Hz | PRES*min: 1.0 |PRES*max: 4270.86 | TEMP*min: 1.27496 |TEMP*max: 28.42342 | SALT*min: 34.44353 |SALT*max: 36.35905 | OXYG*min: 3.68962 |OXYG*max: 14.14613 | ------------------------------------------------- PRES* TEMP* SALT* OXGY* NOBS 1.0, 28.4099, 36.0187, 3.690, 103 2.0, 28.4181, 36.0200, 3.690, 138 3.0, 28.4194, 36.0215, 3.690, 0 4.0, 28.4200, 36.0230, 3.691, 0 5.0, 28.4205, 36.0245, 3.691, 79 Most of the CTD stn locations were near the equator and about 37 W So let me know which CTD locations are a problem for you. Jack Whitehead was the chief sci on the Kn04 cruise. Cheers... Dick PS I see the above header has beginning longitude/latitude as deg/min/sec and the final position is decimal degrees. A bit confusing. We had some Brasilian students running the CTD and some small header errors are evident.
CTD data for this cruise was moved from: /home/whpo/karla/NON_WHP/CM_HYDRO_2001.03.09_JCREASE/CURRENT_METER_WOCE_CRUISES/AR04E_ACM10/32IC244_10. Expocode for this cruise is: 32IC244_10. According to the CTD files the dates for this cruise are Sept 20, 1992-Oct 01, 1992. This cruise has been placed in position ar04_c. Changes were made accordingly: ar04_d was moved to e, ar04_c was moved to d.
I work with the WOCE Hydrographic Program Office, managing the WOCE repeat cruise data. We work closely with Jim Crease and some time ago inheirited some current meter data that I was hoping you could help me out with. The emails Jim forwarded on to our office were correspondences between the two of you regarding these CTD data. We have the 1992 Iselin and 1994 Knorr cruises' CTD data. From the files we've gleened that the dates were Sep 20 - Oct 01 1992 for the Iselin cruise and May 30 - Jun 07 1994 for the Knorr. However, that's all the information we have at the moment. Can you tell us where we might find any information about: the Chief Scientist and sponsor Institution and country; whether or not a cruise documentation file exists; if there is a station navigation summary file; and finally any data contact PI's. I see from a later email to Jim that bottle samples were for calibration purposes only, so we're assuming that no bottle file is available. Can you confirm this for us? Any information you may have on these cruises would be greatly appreciated.
