Description:
Abstract:
ROV Ventana CTD coefficient data was collected. These coefficients are parameters that the CTD technician aboard the ship programs into the CTD.
Purpose: This data was collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
On the ship, data is retrieved from the wire by a VXWorks realtime operating system and the plnavproc program which samples the data several times a second. While the data still resides on the R/V Point Lobos, a program called rovctd averages the data into 1 second intervals and flags when the ROV is in the water. Logged by the script, rovctdlogr, the data is then written into 2-second logr files. Data in these files are taken continuously over 24-hours from midnight UTC to midnight UTC. Every night, the logr.dat files are transferred to shore for processing. That same night, dat2raw.perl converts the logr.dat files into 2 files, yyyydddvntaCTDraw.txt and yyydddvntaCTDcoef.txt. (See Native Data Set Environment for file naming convention.) When the files are converted into this new format, they are reformatted and all data points where the ROV was out of the water are thrown out. Each file contains all the dives from that one day. The raw.txt and coef.txt are files that can be found in the Original/Ships/PtLobos/rovctd directory. Then, the raw.txt and coef.txt files are converted to derived files (yyyyddddvntaCTDder.txt) using the script raw2der.perl Here they are averaged into 15 second bins. Finally, a PV-Wave program creates profiling CTD data plots (yyyyddddvntader.gif). The der.txt and der.gif files can be found in the Processed/Ships/PtLobos/rovctd directory.
