Description

BCO-DMO-created "master" file of sampling events from the GEOTRACES EPZT cruise. This dataset combines information from the EPZT event log, bottle files (ODF and GT-C), and sampling logs.

Note on depth fields:
ODF reports that the CTDDEPTH column agreed best with depths identified from CTD bottle trips recorded during GEOTRACES CTD acquisition. The depth values in CTDDEPTH column are from the Saunders & Fofonoff 1976 calculation of depth from pressure. This is the same default calculation of depth used by SeaBird (SBE) software. GEOTRACES CTD data acquisition uses SBE software. It follows that it would be preferable and consistent for GEOTRACES and ODF to use the values in the CTDDEPTH column.
