cgc90sta.inv (File 4)

This file provides station inventory information for each of 63 stations occupied during the R/V Malcolm Baldrige CGC-90 Cruise. There is one entry for each station. Each line contains a section number, cast number, latitude, longitude, sampling date (day/month/year), sampling time, and sounding depth of the station. The file is sorted by station number and can be read using the following FORTRAN 77 code [contained in stainv.for (File 2)]:

            INTEGER  sta, cast, dep 
            REAL lat, lon
            CHARACTER date*8, time*4
            read (1, 10, end=999) sta, cast, lat, lon, date, time,
         1 dep
    10    format (6X, I2, 5X, I3, 2X, F7.3, 2X, F8.3, 2X, A8, 4X,
         1 A4, 4X, I4)

Stated in tabular form, the contents include the following:

Variable Variable Type Variable Width Starting Column Ending Column
sta Numeric 2 7 8
cast Numeric 3 14 16
lat Numeric 7 19 25
lon Numeric 8 28 35
date Character 8 38 45
time Character 4 50 53
dep Numeric 4 58 61


  • sta - is the station number;
  • cast - is the cast number;
  • lat - is the latitude of the station (in decimal degrees) (Stations in the Southern Hemisphere have negative latitudes);
  • lon - is the longitude of the station (in decimal degrees) (Stations in the Western Hemisphere have negative longitudes);
  • date - is the date the station was sampled (day/month/year);
  • time - is the time the station was sampled (Greenwich Mean Time);
  • dep - is the sounding depth of the station (in m).
