CTD has been converted to exchange using the new exchange code and put online. Only cast 1 was used for the conversion and the latitude and longitude values missing were replaced with other values from the same station.
CTD files (WHP format) needed major corrections in order to be translated into CTD-Exchange type files. Among the changes were making the header lines in each CTD-WHP files correctly aligned, changing the incorrect DEG C to the correct single word DEG_C, and removing the control-Zs from the last line of each CTD-WHP file. In addition, the sumfile was incorrectly formatted with many lines missing either lat-lon and/or time-date values. These lines were removed from the temporary sumfile used to make the exchange files since they didn't correspond to any of the original WHP-CTD files. Original, unchanged sumfile is still online, but the WHP-CTD zip archive is now updated with the format-corrected versions as is the zip archive of the CTD-Exchange files.
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.
BOT: Inserted -9 for all missing bottle numbers in the BTLNBR column. Inserted -9.0 for all missing ctd raw pressures in the CTDRAW column. (i.e. changed .7549 to 0.7549) Removed hard carriage returns. Added name/date stamp. Ran wocecvt with warnings pertaining to missing lat/lon within sumfile.
SUM: Aligned all data columns to conform to WOCE format. Added fourth header line (dashed line) Capitalized all header parameters. Edited all header parameters to correspond to WOCE format. (i.e. changed CRUISE/LEG to SHIP/CRS) Removed hard carriage returns. Added date/name stamp. Ran sumchk with only warnings due to missing lattitude/longitudes for many casts. It appears that only one lat/lon was taken for each station, even though many casts were conducted per station.
These cruises' bottle and ctd files have been unencrypted and made public. All index pages have been updated to reflect this change, and all these files still need minor reformatting.
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.
