m115gir.dat (File 7)

This file provides the hydrographic and total CO2 data sampled from Girard barrels during R/V Meteor Cruise 11/5. Each line consists of a station number, girard bottle number, pressure (depth), temperature, salinity, total CO2, potential temperature, and potential density. The file is sorted by station number and pressure and can be read by using the following FORTRAN 77 code [contained in girarbot.for (File 6)]:

            INTEGER  STAT, BOTTLE
            REAL PRES, TEMP, SALTY, TCO2, THETA, SIGMA0
            OPEN (unit=5, file='m115gir.dat')
            OPEN (unit=2, file='m115gira.dat')
     
            READ (5, 10,end=999) STAT, BOTTLE, PRES, TEMP, SALTY, TCO2,
          1 THETA, SIGMA0
      10    FORMAT (1X,I3,1X,I4,1X,F6.1,1X,F8.3,3X,F6.3,1X,F6.1,1X,F8.3,
          1 1X,F8.3)

Stated in tabular form, the contents include the following:

Variable Variable Type Variable Width Starting Column Ending Column
STAT Numeric 3 2 4
BOTTLE Numeric 4 7 10
PRES Numeric 6 13 18
TEMP Numeric 8 21 28
SALTY Numeric 6 32 37
TCO2 Numeric 6 40 45
THETA Numeric 8 48 55
SIGMA Numeric 8 58 65

where

STAT - is the station number;
BOTTLE - is the bottle number;
PRES - is the CTD pressure (dbar);
TEMP - is the CTD temperature (oC);
SALTY - is the bottle salinity (on the PSS);
TCO2 - is the total carbon dioxide concentration (µ mol/kg);
THETA - is the potential temperature (oC);
SIGMA0 - is the potential density (in sigma units at 0 dbar);
