Abstract:

The BT analog processing can be divided into a number of successive steps reflecting the basic operational sequence Acquisition, initial screening, pre-photography processing, photography, post-photography processing, monitoring, and archiving-distribution. The processing sequence has been formulated to achieve optimum standardization of procedures and optimum use of personnel. Some redundancy has been deliberately introduced, especially in respect to quality control. NODC receives BTs from many activities with widely differing field practices and from all ocean areas and inland waters of the world. Undoubtedly, area specialists processing their own data would find portions of this processing sequence superfluous. During processing at NODC, a number of auxiliary and often ephemeral records are generated. A detailed description of these have not been included in this provisional manual considering that they a are for internal use only b are subject to frequent change or modification and c do not materially affect the processing sequence.
