The raw VPR data file collection organized by cruise. You may access the files at: The /rois directory is set up with a subdirectory for each cast, subdirectories for year-days and further subdirectories for hours.

Tip: To work with the raw files files, make a separate subdirectory for the cruise and download the files to that cruise subdirectory. It will require about 1.5 TB of disk space, and you should have a collection of subdirectories similar to those at
