A data storage format has been developed to be used for processed C.T.D. data on the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 11 780 computer. CTDVAX as defined in this report is designed as a flexible internal data format. Station data is organized by ship-cruise-project using a VAX-supplied subdirectory system on disk. This report describes the data organization, file structures, and record formats. File naming conventions, data protection and documentation schemes are explained. Outlines are given of the data processing system in use and of the CTD data accessing utilities available on the VAX.
