Because JAMSTEC was in charge of P8S, I checked the batymetory data and description regarding P8S, and sections plots. I have following comments: 1) Please add following two papers to bibliography because P8S data is used in these papers: ashino, Y., H. Watanabe, B. Herunadi, M. Aoyama, and D. Hartoyo, 1999: Current variability at the Pacific entrance of the Indonesian Throughflow. J. (BGeophys. Res., 104, 11021-11035. You Y., N. Suginohara, M. Fukasawa, H. Yoritaka, K. Mizuno, Y. Kashino and D. Hartoyo, 2003: Transport of North Pacific Intermediate Water across Japanese WOCE sections, J. Geophys. Res., in press. 2) From section plots of nutrients, I feel that there are some offset of nutrients between P8S and P8N cruises because of large difference at 10N station. I think that someone should check this. (Mizuno-san, Yoritaka-san and Saito-san, could you please discuss this matter ?)

For P8S the notes/updates at whp imply that c14 has been run (in Japan) and should be released, but the whp data file contains no C14 data (or C13). This is not one of the cruises which we have included in discussions with NSF regarding "analysis of unfunded samples". If I can get the data, I can certainly do a very quick QC. -- Bob Key
Based on the final quality control analysis (JGOFS/NOAA grant work) the data quality for this cruise is not the best. Recommended additive adjustments for TCO2 and Alk are +2 and +6 micromoles respectively. I have attached a copy of the correction table (see cruise report, section G2) for pacific cruises that included carbon measurements. Most of the time, these recommended corrections are so small that I doubt the change will be visible in graphic sections. The changes might make a small difference in maps on deep surfaces. -- bob
Multiplicative adjustments for phosphate and silicate are 1.0391 and 1.0229, respectively. I have attached a copy of the correction table for pacific cruises (see cruise report, section G.2) that included carbon measurements. Most of the time, these recommended corrections are so small that I doubt the change will be visible in graphic sections. The changes might make a small difference in maps on deep surfaces.
Oh, yes. I meant lack of funding for the tritium. Anyway I heard that Dr. Kumamoto are gonig to deposit C14 data to WHPO within a few weeks.
The Bottle File has the following parameters: DELC14, C14ERR; The Bottle File contains: CastNumber StationNumber BottleNumber SampleNumber. KUMAMOTO, YUICHIORO would like the data PUBLIC. I have just submitted the P8S radiocarbon data through the WHPO ftp data submission site. The file name is "p08shy.txt (ascii file)" including the radiocarbon data, errors, and flags. I should inform you of the replicate measurements of radiocarbon. We have 9 replicates as listed below: > STNNBR, SAMPNO, Number of replicates, (original data +- error) > 01, 20, 2, (-211.4+-6.1, -202.0+-7.2) > 07, 21, 2, (-170.6-+6.2, -163.8+-6.3) > 07, 34, 2, (112.7+-6.0, 107.9+-6.0) > 15, 01, 3, (-221.2+-7.0, -216.2+-5.8, -208.1+-3.7) > 15, 15, 2, (-212.7+-7.1, -206.9+-3.7) > 15, 20, 2, (-151.2+-7.8, -146.3+-3.9) > 15, 27, 2, (74.1+-9.5, 81.1+-4.5) > 18, 01, 2, (-220.5+-3.6, -216.9+-3.6) > 18, 26, 2, (102.0+-6.2, 92.2+-6.2)
You meant about P8S, I see. In P8S cruise, we took radiocarbon, tritium and helium samples. Radiocarbon data set will be sent to WHPO by Dr.Kumamoto in the near future, but tritium has not yet analyzed cause of the lack of foundation. Besides helium samples were failed to preserve. Then the only radiocarbon data set could be sent the WHPO.
I got a massage from JAMSTEC (Dr. Kashio) informing that Indonesia agreed to make the data public. There is no problem to do so for JAMSTEC also. This message come on 10 August.
