PR15 and PR16 data are collected during TAO mooring cruises. Each mooring cruise services two lines. CTDs and salinity samples are collected from 180 as well as 165E (PR15), and 95W as well as 110W (PR16). But I only submit the data from PR15 and PR16 (about half). The documentation is for the whole cruise and states in the first paragraph how many CTDs were collected on each line. All of the data are submitted yearly to NODC, and are maintained here in our database. I found some 1999 email correspondence between Greg Johnson, Jim Swift, and Jim Crease regarding the extra data and will forward them to you.
**NOTE although the doc file states cruise dates of Oct 24 to Nov 22, the summary file contains only November ship (actual cruise) dates. The expocode for this cruise was based on the data files and not the doc file. Therefore an expocode of 33RB200311 instead of 33RB200310 was used.** There is a sum, bot, and 23 CTD station files. Bot contains just salinity and oxygen. All files have been converted to exchange and netCDF with no detectable errors. Station track images, xml and html pages were generated and all files link from to the new website. These data will not show up on the tables until the cruise information is entered into the database. Notes on minor reformatting follow below: ----------------------------------------- 2004.03.10 DBK Notes on minor reformatting performed on pr16_2003b: SUM: -changed expocode from: 33RBGP603_1 to 33RB200311_1. -removed leading zero(s) from station number to conform to those in bottle file. -minor column alignment. -added name/date stamp. BOT: -changed expocode from: 33RBGP603_1 to 33RB200311_1. -reverse ordered the pressures to be increasing by cast. -added name/date stamp. CTD: -changed expocode from: 33RBGP603_1 to 33RB200311_1. -removed leading zero(s) from station number to conform to those in bottle file. Converted bot and ctd files to exchange and netcdf with no apparent errors.
There are files for you on our anonymous FTP site, ftp.pmel.noaa.gov, in subdirectory /ctd/woce/pr15 and /ctd/woce/pr16. In the past I haven't been able to upload data to your site, so I hope you don't mind retrieving it from our site. CTD and sample salinity data were collected during two cruises along PR15 (33KMGP403_1 and 33KMGP803_1), and during two cruises along PR16 (33KMGP203_1 and 33RBGP603_1) in the year 2003. In addition, CTD oxygen and sample oxygen data were collected during 33RBGP603_1. There are WOCE formatted CTD data listings, .SUM, .SEA, and an in-house documentation file for each cruise. All data should be considered public.
