Abstract:

A program has been written for the storage of navigation, bathymetry, and magnetics data on magnetic tape in BCD form. This eliminates the problem of sotring vast amounts of data collected on computer cards by oceanographic and geophysical cruises. This program uses a slightly modified format recommended by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences. The program was written in FORTRAN 4 for use on the CDC 3800 however the program can be converted to run on other systems with littly difficulty.
