-Pressure sorted bottle file bottles. -Ran wocecvt with no errors. -added name/date stamp -moved previous file to original directory and linked new edited file. - edited index.htm file to indicate update.
Bottle was converted to exchange and put online. Data was checked with JOA with no apprent problems. Sumfile contains no navitgational ingormation for station 40 cast 1. Because the bottle file required it, station 40 cast 2 was modified to cast 1 only for the purpose of the conversion.
CTD has been converted to exchange using the new code and put online.
I have found a very minor problem with the zipped CTD files for cruise AR12c (74AB62_1, RRS Charles Darwin, Aug-Sep 1991) on the WHPO web page http://whpo.ucsd.edu/data/repeat/atlantic/ar12/ar12_c/index.htm of which I thought you might wish to be aware. The file for cast 79 (ctd62079.wct) lists STNNBR as " 9" and cast 81 (ctd62081.wct) as " 1". All other files give the correct cast numbers. This was causing me a bit of grief as I match STNNBR in the nav file with the STNNBRs in the CTD files when creating a single Matlab file for a section.
Files CTD62079.WCT and CTD62081.WCT were modified in the CTD zip file. They both had errors in the Station Numbers. New files were zipped up and replaced the ones online.
Expocodes for sum and bottle were modified. Expocodes in all ctd files have been editted to match the underscored expocode in the sum and bottle file. New files were zipped and replaced existing ctd files online. Old files were moved to original directory.
Ran sumchk on SUM and got this error: .SUM header was missing: WHEEL_MT PRESS_MX sumun1: bad lathem=8 main: warning on rec= 123 sumun1: bad lathem=8 main: warning on rec= 235 Added decimal points to lines 123 and 235: 74AB62/1 AR7E 40 2 ROS 081591 0356 BO 59 14 68 N 34 50.33 W GP S 2615 2200 17 1-4,7-8 Second ^M was changed to: 74AB62/1 AR7E 40 2 ROS 081591 0356 BO 59 14.68 N 34 50.33 W GP S 2615 2200 17 1-4,7-8 Second ^M and 74AB62/1 AR12 76 1 ROS 082991 1532 EN 52 31 38 N 22 55.38 W GP S MkV ^M was changed to 74AB62/1 AR12 76 1 ROS 082991 1532 EN 52 31.38 N 22 55.38 W GP S MkV ^M Ran sumchk again with no errors found.
I have placed these data (unmerged) in the AR12 original directory, and have updated the public table to indicate that they are in, public, and 'raw'. - Danie
I have sent the CFC data in I hope a convenient form for AR12 cruise 74AB62_1. You will need to merge them with the bottle data and please note that All are now in the public domain. If you have any queries please let me know. Please note units are pmol/l
After some deliberation, I have made a decision concerning the labeling of the 74AB62/2 cruise of the Charles Darwin. First, this cruise will be re-labeled as an ERS1 cal/val cruise and not have a WOCE line designation. Fear not, I have no plan to remove the file from our online site. We do plan to move or link the 74AB62/2 cruise to a new WWW page listing "other quality controlled, high temporal resolution meteorology data". (Note: the expocode and facility attributes will reflect the changes noted by Dr. Saunders). For simplicity on our end, the 74AB62/1 cruise will continue to be labeled an AR_07E WOCE line within all files. The cruise will be cross referenced to AR12 on our WWW pages and FTP site. Any plans to link the meteorology data to all other WOCE data for these cruises will have to await a discussion of synthesis plans by the WOCE community. In addition, all the shortwave radiation data for both these cruises, found to be suspect by our data center, has been corrected. Peter Taylor notified us of the cause of the error and the necessary fix. An addendum to the QC report will outline changes in the RAD2 variable and the cruise labels. As for a time frame, we should have all the changes posted by the end of the year.
