        supplementalInformation:  REPLACEMENT NOTE: The files in NODC Accession 0001261 (this accession) were completely replaced by a subset of the data files in NODC Accession 0002167, received at NODC on 31 January 2005. The data in NODC Accession 0001261 are no longer published and accessible online. Any previous use of the data files in NODC Accession 001261 should be reviewed in the context of the replacement data files available in NODC Accession 0002167 (https://accession.nodc.noaa.gov/0002167). Below is information from an email from Krystyna Jankowska on Jan 31 2005. "The 2002_2 in this submission is a full set of RAN data collected in year 2002, after RAN released the security code, and therefore should replace the previous one with NODC accession 0001261."
