Abstract:

CONVRT is a computer program which provides the capability to interface oceanographic hydrocast data contained in the SEAS Data Bank with the programs RSVP and RETVAL which are used to select and preprocess ocean station data for use by the NORDA suite of acoustic models. CONVRT is a stand-alone program which generates a packed RSVP input data file from a Subset Binary File produced by CREATABASE, the Data Bank storage and retrieval system. This data file reformatting is accomplished in an efficient and uncomplicated mannner with a minimal amount of user interaction. This document is the complete technical and user documentation for CONVRT. It presents a discussion of the software design and implementation and the source level documentation for all components of the program. It also describes the input and output files in detail as well as instructions to the user for the preparation of the input file and the execution of the program. Author
