CAS (CHEMICAL ABSTRACTS SOCIETY) PARAMETER CODES and Other Data from MULTIPLE SHIPS From Caribbean Sea and Others from 19790205 to 19890503 (NCEI Accession 9100017)

The accession contains Chemical Abstracts Society (CAS) parameter codes and Other Data from MULTIPLE SHIPS From Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico from February 5, 1979 to May 3, 1989. Floppy disks containing all the Caribbean Oil Pollution (CARIPOL) Database were submitted by J. Price of NOS. The data were originally held and quality controlled by Dr. Atwood at NOAA/AOML. The data are divided into three groupings: Beach Tar, Floating Tar and Dissolved Tar.

The Beach Tar data (ref. no. L01174 02/05/79-05/03/89, 25 STATIONS, 26,413 RECORDS) was submitted by 21 different countries around the caribbean (different institutions and ships).

The Dissolved Tar data (ref. no. L01175 11/29/79-11/13/88, 11 STATIONS, 7,209 RECORDS) was submitted by 11 countries,

The Floating Tar data (ref. no. L01176 10/29/80-11/27/88, 9 STATIONS, 3,250 RECORDS ) by 9 countries.

A description of the parameter names can be found in file structur.doc. The data are in the vax under DUA2:[LEVELA] L01174. The data was offline on May 4, 2005 when this abstract was last edited. Data should be in F144 format. NOTE: Please check the actual file format when the data is online.

Supplemental Information
Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
