Data History

  • Cruise start date corrected Jerry Kappa

    Action: Website Update
    I've changed the cruise start date on the PDF and text cruise reports to Feb. 20 1996 as suggested below.
    "I have been using the 2/1 data (see recent distributions from me), but the evidence indicates that the 2/20 makes more sense. This would indicate that the first page of the pdf is incorrect and my records/names are incorrect." - Bob Key

      still exists in the first page of the final cruise report at CCHDO. Given 
      that the first station is only a few miles from the sailing port of Durbin, 
      it is a bit surprising that someone didn?t catch this earlier. The last 
      station was near Antarctica on Mar 22 so the end date of 3/31 shown on the 
      first page of the report is probably OK.

    Data Type: CFCs/SUM
    Action: Website Updated:
    June 1, 2005  
    i06sbhy.txt and i06sbsu.txt
    Changed the BE latitude for sta. 29 from 30 to 40 to fit with the other positions for that station.  I checked the original file and it had 40.   
    Sta. 48, cast 2, bottle 20 had values of 0.000 for cfc-11 and cfc-12.  The values were obviously incorrect, so I changed them to -9.000 and the Qflags to 9 (re Lynne Talley).  
    Put corrected files online and made new exchange file.  
    Could not make new netcdf file and it is not obvious to  me what the problem is.
  • sta 68 lat corrected Sarilee Anderson

    Date: 2005-05-23
    Data Type: SUM
    Action: Website Updated:
    I made this correction (requested by L. Talley) in the .sum file:
    there is an error in the sum file for I6SB, in station 68.  The latitude should be 56, not 59.  this will put it back in order. 
    (sum file  http://whpo.ucsd.edu/data/onetime/indian/i06/i06sb/i06sbsu.txt
    BE line for station 68:  latitude differs from BO and EN, and is out of order compared with stations 67 and 69.  Therefore suspect a typo.)

  • Data Online Dave Muus

    Date: 2002-07-26
    Data Type: CTD/BTL/SUM
    Action: Website Updated:
    New sumfile provided by P.I. is now on-line. Made some format and data corrections as described in notes file. Corrections provided by P.I. made to bottle file. CTD data for Stations 49 through 96 were added to WOCE ctd zip file. New Exchange files on-line. 
    Notes on I06Sb changes:
    1.  SUMMARY file from
    /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/indian/i06/i06sb/original/2002.05.14_I06SB_POISSON/Summmary CIVA2 (13-5-02).txt was changed to woce format. (Original file had double tabs as field separators, missing leading zeros in date and time, and had some missing decimal
    points and "O"s for "0"s in positions.) Changed latitude on sta32 cast 2 from 49 deg to 40 deg and sta 33 cast 1 EN from 49 deg to 41 deg to match adjacent casts and 19990406 sumfile now on web. Station 95 Cast 1 BE longitude changed from 29 degto 24 deg to match BO and EN longitudes for same cast. Changed WOCE SECT from I06S to I06SB.
    Sumchk on new file ok.
    2.  A new bottle file was received from A. Poisson at the same time as the SUMMARY file with corrections suggested by WHPOSIO notes file of March 15, 2001, but the new bottle file has columns left justified instead of right justified and the bottle quality flag is out of place.  The corrections given in Alan Poisson's message of May 14, 2002, were made to the web bottle file
    (20010314WHPOSIODM). WHP-ID changed from I6 to I06SB. Other quality flag errors may still exist.
    3.  CTD Stations 1 through 96 from: /usr/export/html-public/data/onetime/indian/i06/i06sb/original/2000.11.06_08_CIVA2_CTD_BOTTLE_POISSON/i0-6.ctd were compressed for the CTD file. WHP-ID changed from I06S to I06SB, blanks in date were replaced by zeros, and NR. OF RECORDS were corrected.
    Temperature units were "DEG C" vs ITS-68 or ITS-90; changed to "DEG_C". Former CTD zipped file on web contained Stations 1 - 48 only with old sumfile used for exchange file.
    4.  New exchange bottle and ctd files made.
    5.  New files checked with Java Ocean Atlas.
  • CTD de-coded, errors corrected, see note: Stephen C. Diggs

    Date: 2002-07-17
    Data Type: CTD
    Action: Website Updated:
    Was able to de-code (and decompress) the newer (year 2000) version of the CTD files. These files are currently located in the following directory:
    As it turns out, they were "stuffit" files (mac), and decompressed fine on my OSX box., even though they were mislabeled with the "*.Z" xtension (usually reserved for UN*X compress files).
    I also changed the expocode (changing slash to underscore) and corrected the WOCE line ID (from I6 to I06SB).

    Action: Final Data Submitted
    The attached file is the I06S(b 1996) data set with new TCARBN and TALK flags. I also fixed the problems in many cases throughout the file when flag "4" was assigned to missing data. I agreed with Bob's flags for TCARBN and TALK, although the TALK data are very noisy I have added just one more questionable flag "3" to TALK at 70-1-13 where TALK is obviously hi vs pre. The rest of flags are as to Bob's last message.

    1. Since QUALT1 for DELHE3 are all "2"s, the QUALT1 for HELIUM were all changed from "1"s to "2"s. All entries in the file appear to have reasonable HELIUM values.
    2. The new SEA file still has numerous QUALT1 inconsistencies. For example:
    a) Station 2 Btl #s 9 thru 1 Silicate has "-9.00" for data and Quality Code 4.  Numerous other places in this data set have same problem.
    b) Station 6 Cast 2 Btl #15 Nitrate and Phosphate have apparently good data but Quality Code "0"s. Station 90 Cast 1 Btl #11 & #8 thru #1 have apparently good Alkalinity but Quality Code "0"s.
    c) Stations 90 and 91 have some bottles Quality Coded "5" but with data reported. Bottle oxygens are coded "3" but other values including some Station 90 freons are coded "2".
    d) Station 91 Cast 1 Btl #s 21 & 16 nutrients have -9.00 values and Quality Code "1"s.
    3. a) The SEA file has the following Stations & Casts not found in the SUMMARY (19990406WHPOSIOSA) file:

    It is not always "2" which has to be put for the bottle number flag.  Forget the first sentence of my message. The table is (should be !) OK.  I hope you are able to read the table; if not, let me know.

    The Number bottle was not included in the flag column; thus the only thing to do is to add a "2" leading each line of this column (eg: to add 2*E+14 to each number of the column).  Attached is a corrected table.

  • Sent to A. Poisson: QC flag questions Stephen C. Diggs

    Date: 2001-02-13
    Data Type: BTL
    Action: Update Requested
    We have been looking at the bottle data for I06S (1996) and there seem to be some problems with the quality code flags.  For instance, CTDOXY (CTD Oxygen) has a value of -9.0 on a particular line, but the QC flag is 2 (good).  Another example is CTDSAL on the same line actually has a value, but the QC flag indicates that there is no value.
    Both of these and many other values may be found in the first few lines of the file.  The question is whether or not it would be possible to track these QC flag errors down and get another, corrected file.  Please let me know.

    Please find attached the data of water samples collected during the cruise CIVA 2 in 1996; the format is Excel, not compressed. I hope the file is not too long. If you have any trouble, let me know.
    If you have trouble to read the CTD files I sent to you previuosly, I can send them not compressed, under excel format.

    I would very much appreciate your help with the data and information from the WOCE Hydrographic Program "I06" section on the MARION DUFRESNE, Feb 20 - Mar 22, 1996, which we at the WHP Office call by the EXPOCODE 35MF103_1.
    At the WHP Office we can find only the ".sum" file [covering stations 999, 998, and 1-96], the CTD data for stations 1-48 only, and helium data for the helium stations.  We have no CTD data for stations 49-96, and we have no bottle salinity, oxygen, nutrient, or CFC data for any of the stations.
    We have double-checked the CD-ROM you sent us some time ago and it contains only the ".sum" and CTD data mentioned above from the 1996 cruise.  We have double-checked our email and we can find no correspondence about the missing data.
  • Helium data online Stephen C. Diggs

    Action: Website Updated:
    Dear Steven Rutz,
    To date, I have not received any additional data for 35MF103_1.  I decided to place the helium data online as a placeholder for the rest of the bottle data.  Perhaps, Dr. Poisson can shed some light on this matter for you (and me).
    -Steve Diggs
    Dear Alain Poisson and Stephen Diggs,
    I've been asked about the status of the data from cruise I06SB (WOCE expocode 35MF103_1; also known as CIVA 2). I've searched for the data from this cruise on the WOCE
    Global Data CD-ROMs (ver. 2.0) and at the WHPO web pages (see addresses below).  I've found only 48 CTD stations of an apparent 98 stations and I've found only He for the bottle data.  Do more data exist? (I'm not sure what the asterisks mean on the data availability page.)  And, if they do exist, are they now available to the public? Please help.
    Thank you,

    Data Type: BA
    Action: Data Update:
    The quality of the Ba data from most WOCE legs in the Indian Ocean turned out to be quite  poor; far worse than attainable analytical precision (+/-20% as opposed to 2%). We recorded many vials which came back with loose caps and evaporation associated with that seems to be the primary problem.  The only hope I have of producing a decent data set is to run both Ba and a conservative element simultaneously and then relating that to the original salinity of the sample.  We will be taking delivery on a high resolution ICPMS here at OSU sometime this winter which would make the project analytically feasible and economical.  I do not presently have the funds in hand to do this and so have archived the samples for the time being. I don't think the WHPO would derive any benefit from the present data set.

    The I6 (helium) data are from the 1996 cruise (CIVA-2 cruise). The CIVA-1 helium samples were bad due to sampling problems (the clamps on the copper tubes were not properly closed and most samples suffered partial reequilibration with the atmosphere...).

    I received the I06S (1996 version) which is complete from Alain Poisson today on CDROM.  This CDROM also contains all of the CTD data for I06-1993, so we can get Sailee/Dave Muus to correct the truncated stations from the aborted I06S effort.
  • sta. 25 has several probs Lynne Talley

    Date: 1998-09-15
    Data Type: BTL
    Action: Update Needed
    Station 25 on I06S has columns out of order (temperature and salinity switched etc etc).  Can you please regrid all properties for I06S, leaving out station 25?  It's too much trouble for me to correct the data set right now.
    PLEASE keep this email in your comments for I06S which would be forwarded to a DQE or given to Dave Muus or Sarilee to fix before the data set is sent to a DQE.  
    The data set should definitely be fixed before it is released to anyone else.  The problem is in station 25 cast 1, where the columns are in a different order from all other casts on the section.

    Action: Data Reformatted
    Notes on i06 reformatting.
    Files i06_sum.txt and i06_hyd.txt were reformatted to conform with what is, at this time, the WHP formats.   This consisted mostly of adding spaces and shifting data.  The following are other 
    discrepancies that were found.  Some that were obvious were "corrected" others were left as is for someone else to determine what should be done.
    record 136 longitude input as 29 60.0 - changed to 30 00.0
    record 420 max. pressure input as 288?2 - changed to 288.2
    records 516, 517, and 518 all had the date as 31393 - changed to 031393
    SAMPNO - these are strange numbers 10, 20 30,40,1750,2000, as if they were desired depths (pressure) for sample.  Doesn't cause a problem, just strange.  There are even some that have F-20 as a sample no, these are usually the deepest sample(s).
    Station 12, cast 1 and cast 4 - these casts do not have CTDPRS, CTDTMP, CTDSAL, CTDOXY, THETA, SILCAT, NITRAT or PHSPHT. But they do have SALNY, OXYGEN, CFC-11, CFC-12, and TCARBN.
    WOCECVT will not convert them because there are no pressures (depths)
    Station 25, records 720 to 731, sample 325 bottle 12 to sample 1600 bottle 1. data screwed up.  THETA, SALNY, OXYGEN, and SILCAT columns do not  have the correct values.  QUALT1 flags not much help in determining what the problem might be.  Values aren't even close to what they should be.  Some values might be in the wrong columns, but that does not account for everything.
    Station 28, record 811 (last record in file) is incomplete.
    The .hyd file stops at sta. 28, but the .sum file indicates there should be 52 stations.
    In the following stations the cast number in the .sum file does not  agree with the cast number in the .hyd file.
    Station #s      cast #s in .sum          cast #s in .hyd
      2               1 and 3                  1 and 2
      3               1 and 3                  1 and 2

      9               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     11               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     15               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     17               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     19               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     21               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     23               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     25               1 and 3                  1 and 2
     27               1 and 3                  1 and 2  
    I'm guessing the .hyd is correct and the .sum is incorrect.  But  I did not change either of them.
