The objective of Project OPAQUE is to gather continuous data from a series of measurements in the visible and infrared regions over a period of several years. This requirement for the continuous data recording of the various experiments has resulted in a large data base that must be catalogued, accessed, edited, reduced, and reformatted for analysis and study. Concurrent with the management of the data base is the requirement of maintaining the central data logger system and its control programs at the West Germany field site. This report describes all of the additional control programs and procedures that have been developed during this contract period to generate, edit, process, and analyze the digital data tapes and is divided into two parts. Part I of this report describes the data collection phase, the cataloging and access to the data base, and the sensor performance and analysis. Part II describes the additional programs developed for the data searching and stripping procedures, generation of the OPAQUE data bank files, along with the plotting, selection, and display procedures for subsequent experimental analysis.
