p10sta.txt (File 6)

This file provides station inventory information for each of the 94 stations occupied during the R/V Thomas G. Thompson cruise along WOCE Section P10. Each line of the file contains an expocode, section number, station number, cast number, sampling date (month/date/year), sampling time, latitude, longitude, and sounding depth. The file is sorted by station number and can be read by using the following FORTRAN 90 code [contained in stainv.for (File 2)]:

            INTEGER stat, cast, depth 
            CHARACTER expo*11, sect*3, date*10, time*4
            REAL latdcm, londcm
            read (1, 10, end=999) expo, sect, stat, cast, date, time,
          1 latdcm, londcm, depth 
      10    format (A11, 7X, A3, 4X, I3, 5X, I1, 3X, A10, 2X, A4, 3X,
          1 F7.3, 3X, F8.3, 3X, I4)

Stated in tabular form, the contents include the following:

Variable Variable type Variable width Starting column Ending column
expo Character 11 1 11
sect Character 3 19 21
stat Numeric 3 26 28
cast Numeric 1 34 34
date Character 10 38 47
time Character 4 50 53
latdcm Numeric 7 58 63
londcm Numeric 8 67 74
depth Numeric 4 78 81

The variables are defined as follows:

expo  -  is the expedition code of the cruise;
sect  -  is the WOCE section number (i.e., P10);
stat  -  is the station number;
cast  -  is the cast number;
date  -  is the sampling date (month/day/year);
time  -  is the sampling time [Greenwich mean time (GMT)];
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);
depth  -  is the sounding depth of the station (in meters).
