Abstract:

A new digital data tape format has been developed to be used for data from the WHOIBrown CTD microprofiler. CTD-78 Version 1 as detailed in this report is designed as a flexible and expandable internal data format adapted to the Hewlett-Packard 210021MX series 16-bit mini-computers currently used to transcribe and process CTD data at sea. The ten record types presently used in this multifile tape format store CTD and associated water sample data and the labeling information needed to convert the data to physical units. Record types are identified by unique keywords. Author
