Files listed here are the most recent version submitted by the cruise scientists, but have not yet been checked for consistency and merged into the main Dataset. They are provided "as is". If you are unsure of which files to use, stick to the Dataset files above.
These files are not yet in the Dataset.
The exchange bottle and netcdf files did not have data which made sense. They have been removed from the dataset pending conversion from the WOCE formatted files.
- Added Station Location Plot - Added PDF version of the report - Added these Data Processing Notes
New text doc online.
CTD was converted to exchange format. New files were put online. Sumfiles needed to go through fix_sum_file.pl to fill in data gaps in order to run exchange code.
Bottle file was converted into Exchange format. Website now contains a link to the CSV file. #Station/Cast SU4617/2, SU4618/3, SU4619/3, SU4620/3, SU4621/3, SU4622/3 were removed because of missing navigational data.
As per Masaro Saiki this data has been unencrypted and made public. The sumfile, bottle file and CTD files have all been reformatted to conform to WOCE format.
Email sent by Masaro Saiki to release these data into the public domain. Encrypted files were moved to original directory. Note: encrypted files contain original unformatted data. Unencrypted copies were then edited to conform to WOCE format as follows: SUM: Removed hard carriage returns. Added dashed header line below units. Removed leading spaces before expocode. Aligned *all* columns to conform with WOCE format. Capitalized all headers. Added date/name stamp. Changed expocode from 49SU9202/4 to 49SU9202_4. Ran sumchk: warnings pertain to missing lat/lon for following stations/ station combinations: SU4617 2 SU4618 1, 2 SU4619 1, 2 SU4620 1, 2 SU4622 1, 2 NOTE: A copy of the formatted sumfile was edited to fill in missing cast code lats/lons. Because lat/lons were sporatically missing from all BE, BO, EN cast codes, lat/lons were copied from BE or EN to BO when needed to make one complete set of cast codes for a navigation file. The station track was generated from this edited sumfile. This copy resides in the original directory and is called pr17sum_for_nav.txt. HYD: Removed hard carriage returns. Changed expocode from 49SU9202/4 to 49SU9202_4. Added leading zero to decimal values CTDPRS for the following station/cast/samps: SU4617 2 10 SU4618 3 20 SU4619 3 21 SU4620 3 21 SU4621 3 22 SU4622 3 22 Moved asterisks from bottle number column to sample number column, since no bottle numbers were given, yet a quality flag was designated. Since sample numbers were supplied the asterisks were moved to the top of this column. BTLNBR column is empty. No values or missing data values. CTDRAW column is also entirely empty (no missing data value) Ran wocecvt: errors produced as a result of missing lat/lon in sumfile as well as missing bottle and ctdraw fields. No other errors produced. Added time/name stamp. CTD: Changed expocode from 49SU9202/4 to 49SU9202_4. added two spaces in parameter header to line columns up with units columns. ran wctcvt. Errors produced due to missing date/time information in sumfile. no other format errors produced. rezipped formatted files.
I am pleased to inform you that the PIs and participants of the one-time and repeat cruises conducted by the Japan Meteorological Agency's vessels agreed to change most of the data status to public.
