m115sta.inv (File 4)

This file provides station inventory information for each of the 78 stations occupied during R/V Meteor Cruise 11/5. Each line contains a section number, station number, latitude, longitude, sampling date, and sounding depth. The file is sorted by station number and can be read by using the following FORTRAN 77 code [contained in stainv.for (File 2)]:

          
            INTEGER  STAT, MONTH, DAY, YEAR, SDE 
            REAL LAT, LON
            CHARACTER SECTION*4
     
            READ (5, 10, end=999)  SECTION, STAT, LAT, LON, MONTH, 
          1 DAY, YEAR, SDE
      10    FORMAT (A4, 2X, I3, 1X, F7.3, 2X, F7.3, 2X, I1, 1X, I2, 
          1 1X, I2, 2X, I4)
       
 

Stated in tabular form, the contents include the following:

Variable Variable Type Variable Width Starting Column Ending Column
SECTION Character 4 1 4
STAT Numeric 3 7 9
LAT Numeric 7 11 17
LON Numeric 7 20 26
MONTH Numeric 1 29 29
DAY Numeric 2 31 32
YEAR Numeric 2 34 35
SDE Numeric 4 38 41

where

SECTION - is the WOCE section number;
STAT - is the station number (values range from 102 to 179);
LAT - is the latitude of the station (in decimal degrees);
LON - is the longitude of the station (in decimal degrees);
MONTH - is the month the station was sampled;
DAY - is the day the station was sampled;
YEAR - is the year the station was sampled;
SDE - is the sounding depth of the station (in meters).
