         See n)  for list of Expocodes.
    
     b)  Left originator's THETA in file. Normally not in CTD Exchange files.
         Compared to theta calculated with JOA. Near surface values vary +/- .003 and
         deep values vary +/- .001

     e)  ar28_1976a_00012_00001_ct1.csv has different T-S pattern from
         adjacent stations. Is on slope and was done on April 2. May be
         spring time effect. Left as is.  
     
     f)  ar28_1978b 2006.08.10_RFMT_AR28_CTD_DBK has file names with 1987b 
         instead of 1978b. Left original files as is and corrected on-line files.
    
     g)  ar28_1978c and ar28_1978d have same cruise dates in HOLLIDAY 00_README
         files, July 11 -  Sept 17, 1978. First has originator expocode of
         74c11b78 (Stations 167-187, Aug 9-11) and second has 74c11d78
         (Sta 369-380, Sept 11-13).
         Cannot find a cruise report in Documentation directory.
         
         Combined into one cruise with new Expocode 74CH19780711.
    
     h)  ar28_1981b cruise report(ch6_81.pdf) says this cruise departed April 6 and
         returned to Stornoway April 15 at 0740(called Leg A in cruise report) and
         departed April 16 at 1130(called Leg B). Personnel changes were made.
         This cruise was originally reported with one expocode (74c681) for 
         Stations 2-11 and 37-56. I split them into 2 cruises with expocodes:
         74CH19810406 for Stations 2-11 and
         74CH19810416 for Stations 37-56
    
     i)  Changed file names for ar28_1981c and ar28_1983b from
           ar18_198..... to ar28_198..... to match all other exchange file names.
    
     j)  ar28_1983a has cruise dates "11 May - 30 Jun 1983" in HOLLIDAY 00_README.
         Cruise report ch7_83.pdf has Leg A "May 11-23, 1983"
                                      Leg B "May 23-June 2, 1983"
         All ctd data is from Leg B so used 74CH19830523 for EXPOCODE.
    
     k)  Changed quality flags for ar28_1983b_00066_00001_ct1.csv:

         632.5,2,  35.3730,2,   9.2200,2,   9.1482,2
    
     l)  ar28_1983b Stations 55 and 56 have exactly the same date, time 
         position and bottom depth. Sta 55 20-115db and Sta 56 45-745db.
         Left as is.
    
     m)  ar28_1992a Stations have 1 decibar intervals. All previous
         data was 2 decibar data.  Left as is for now.
    
         ar28_1992a Station 30 has temperature but no salinity for 2-6db.
         Used quality flag 9 for CTDSAL & THETA.
