Abstract:

A recently established data archiving group at URI has adopted a format for the storage of current meter data. The storage format chosen serves two purposes. It is used for in-house data storage and processing and copies are sent to external data agencies. Eighty character card images are blocked onto a nine track tape in EBCDIC character code at a packing density of 800 bits per inch. The first ten tape records of each file contain header information label records revealing the station information. Within these first ten tape records the user is told the variables stored and the format of the data records which follow.
