Abstract:

Processing methods, programs, and procedures currently used to create CTD data sets at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution WHOI are described. The post-acquisition data processing steps include instrument calibrations in the laboratory and data calibration at sea, CTD data transformation from a time series to a pressure series, and the water sample data processing using the World Ocean Circulation Experiment WOCE format guidelines. Processing software has been developed for both the MicroVAX and IBM compatible personal computers. The description of the data processing procedures is restricted to the PC system. The programs are written primarily in FORTRAN with some format-related changes required between computer systems.
