s4psta.inv (File 4)

This file provides station inventory information for each of the 113 stations occupied during the R/V Akademik Ioffe Expedition along the WOCE Section S4P. Each record of the file contains an expocode, section number, station number, cast number, sampling date, sampling time, coordinates, 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, cast, depth
       REAL latdcm, londcm 
       CHARACTER expo*12, sect*3, date*6, time*4
 
       read (1, 10, end=999) expo, sect, stat, cast, date, time,
     1 latdcm, londcm, depth
 
10    format (A12, 2X, A3, 3X, I3, 5X, I1, 3X, A6, 2X, A4, 4X,
    1 F7.3, 4X, F8.3, 3X, I4)

Stated in tabular form, the contents include the following:

Variable Variable type Variable width Starting column Ending column
expo Character 12 1 12
sect Character 3 15 17
stat Numeric 3 21 23
cast Numeric 1 29 29
date Character 6 33 38
time Character 4 41 44
latdcm Numeric 7 49 55
londcm Numeric 8 60 67
depth Numeric 4 71 74

where

expo  -  is the expocode of the cruise (always RUKDIOFFE6/1);
sect  -  is the WOCE section number (always S4P);
stat  -  is the station number (values range from 682 to 795);
cast  -  is the cast number;
date  -  is the sampling date (month/day/year);
time  -  is the sampling time (Greenwich mean time);
latdcm  -  is the latitude of the station (in decimal degrees, negative values indicate the Southern Hemisphere);
londcm  -  is the longitude of the station (in decimal degrees, negative values indicate the Western Hemisphere); and
depth  -  is the sounding depth of the station (in meters).
