Delaware Bay Database; Delaware Sea Grant College Program, 28 June 1988 (NCEI Accession 8900151)

The Delaware Bay database contains records of discrete quality observations, collected on 40 oceanographic cruises between May 1978 and October 1985. Each record contains chemical, hydrographic and biological data. The data were submitted by Dr. Jonathan H. Sharp of the University of Delaware. The originator's database has been copied onto current NODC data storage system. There is no DDF or documentation etc.

NOTE: On Dec 3, 2004 when this abstract was written, none of the files could be opened. Apparently we need some programs that will be able to open these files. Documentation is needed for utility programs for converting the data to be used with Lotus 1-2-3, DBASE-III and Reflex. Also a mention was found that the data can also be found under reference numbers l00614-l00653. A reference number was assigned to each cruise. PLEASE NOTE none of the above file numbers are part of this accession.
