  1. These are stored as single ascii files per cruise with several variables merged to one minute (interpolated) time steps.
  2. The first column is the time stamp which, for Albatross convention, is "yrday0_gmt" which means, for example, that a time of "0.5" represents local noontime on Jan 1st.
  3. We all understand this data (shipboard temp, salt, wind, etc.) should be treated as uncalibrated records and should not be used other than exploratory purposes.
