A system for shipboard analysis of buoy data
Prada, Kenneth E.
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes a software system for shipboard processing of buoy data. These data are derived from a variety of instruments installed on buoys recovered during turn-around cruises for the SUBDUCTION experiment. The software package, which operates on a network of Pcs and SUN workstations, provides an interactive and versatile set of tools for handling these data sets. The data are extracted from the native instrument storage media and format, converted to a standard storage format in calibrated scientific units. The resulting files are then processed and displayed for evaluation and analysis. These steps occur within a short period of time following buoy recovery.
