mgd77list - A data-extractor for <legid>.mgd77 files


       mgd77list leg-ids [ -Dastartdate ] [ -Dbstopdate ] [ -E ] [ -Fflags ] [
       -H ] [ -M[flag] ] [ -N ] [ -Rwest/east/south/north ] [ -Sastartdist ] [
       -Sbstopdist ] [ -V ] [ -Wweight ] [ -bo ]


       mgd77list  reads  <legid>.mgd77 files and produces an ASCII [or binary]
       table.  The <legid>.mgd77 files contain track information such as  time
       and  position,  geophysical observables such as gravity, magnetics, and
       bathymetry, and control codes and corrections such as Eotvos or diurnal
       corrections.  The  user may extract any combination of these parameters
       plus the computed quantities distance, heading, and velocity  (v),  and
       finally  weight  (see  -W).  A  sub-section can be specified by passing
       time- or distance-intervals along track or by selecting a region.

              Can be one or more MGD77 8-character cruise identifiers. To give
              a  list of names, use ‘cat cruises.lis‘.  The ".mgd77" extension
              will automatically be appended, if needed. Cruise files will  be
              looked  for  in  the  current  directory  and in all directories
              listed in $MGD77_DIR/MGD77_paths.txt.

       -Da    Do  not  list  data   collected   before   startdate   (yyyy-mm-
              ddT[hh:mm:ss]) [Default is start of cruise].

       -Db    Do   not   list   data   collected   after   stopdate  (yyyy-mm-
              ddT[hh:mm:ss]). [Default is end of cruise].

       -E     Exact match: Only output records that matches all the  requested
              geophysical  columns  [Default  outputs  records that matches at
              least one of the observed columns].

       -F     Comma-separated list of parameter abbreviations in  the  desired
              output  order.  Those  parameters  given  in  UPPER case must be
              present in all output records. Unless indicated, the output for-
              mat is controlled by D_FORMAT. The available abbreviations are:

       id     The 8-character cruise ID string

       time   Absolute calendar time in the format dictated by the GMT default
              settings OUTPUT_DATE_FORMAT and OUTPUT_CLOCK_FORMAT.

       lon    Longitude in  the  format  dictated  by  the  GMT  default  OUT-

       lat    Longitude  in  the  format  dictated  by  the  GMT  default OUT-

       dist   Along-track distance in km or nautical miles (see -N).
       mtf1   Total magnetic field intensity from sensor 1 (in nTesla).

       mtf2   Total magnetic field intensity from sensor 2 (in nTesla).

       mag    Residual magnetic anomaly (in nTesla).

       gobs   Observed gravity (in mGal).

       faa    Free-air gravity anomaly (in mGal).

       ptc    Position Type Code (1 = fix, 3 = interpolated, 9 = unspecified).

       bcc    Bathymetric  Correction  Code,  indicating the procedure used to
              convert travel time to depth.  (01-55 =  Matthews’  zone  -  use
              only  if  Matthews’  zones  were  used  to  correct  depth, 59 =
              Matthews’ corrections used but zones unspecified in data record,
              60  =  S. Kuwahara formula, 61 = Wilson formula, 62 = Del Grosso
              formula, 63 = Carter’s tables, 88 = Other, described  in  header
              sections, 99 = unspecified).

       btc    Bathymetric  Type  Code, indicating how the bathymetry value was
              obtained (1 = observed, 3 = interpolated, 9 = unspecified).

       msens  Magnetic sensor for residual field (1 = 1st or leading sensor, 2
              = 2nd or trailing sensor, 9 = unspecified).

       msd    Depth  (or  altitutde) of the magnetic sensor (m, positive below

       diur   Magnetic diurnal correction (nTesla).

       eot    Eotvos correction (mGal).

       sln    Seismic line number string.

       sspn   Seismic shot point number string.

       nqc    Navigation quality Code (5 = suspected, by source institution, 6
              = suspected, by NGDC, 90 = no problems identified).

              Logical  tests may be added for any of the parameters by append-
              ing one or more comma-separated instructions of the form  parOP-
              value,  where par is one of the parameters listed above, OP is a
              logical operator (<. <=, =, !=, >=, >), and value is used in the
              comparison.  Floating point parameters are compared numerically;
              character parameters are compared lexically (after  leading  and
              trailing  blanks  have  been removed). At least one of the tests
              must be true for the record to be output, expect for tests using
              UPPER  case  parameters  in which case the test must be true for
              output to occur. Note that specifying a test does not imply that
              the  corresponding column will be included in the output stream;
              you must specify the dataflag for that to occur.

       -H     Issue a header record with names for each data field.

              miles;  see  -N)along  track from port of departure. [Default is
              length of track].

       -V     Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr
              [Default runs "silently"].

       -W     Set  the weight for these data. Weight output option must be set
              in -F. This is useful if the data are to be processed  with  the
              weighted averaging techniques offered by blockmean, blockmedian,
              and blockmode.

       -bo    Selects binary output mode (single precision; append d for  dou-
              ble precision) [Default is ASCII].  -H and -M are ignored if -bo
              is selected.


       To  get  a  (distance,  heading,  gravity,  bathymetry)  listing   from
       01010047.mgd77,  starting at June 3 1971 20:45 and ending at distance =
       5000 km, use the following command:

       mgd77list 01010047 -Da1971-06-03T20:45 -Sb5000 -Fdist,azim,faa,depth  >

       To  make  input for blockmean and surface using free-air anomalies from
       all the cruises listed in the file cruises.lis, but only the data  that
       are inside the specified area, and make the output binary:

       mgd77list  ‘cat  cruises.lis‘  -Flon,lat,faa -R-40/-30/25/35 -bo > all-

       To extract the locations of depths exceeding 9000 meter that  were  not
       interpolated  (btc  !=  1)  from  all  the  cruises  listed in the file

       mgd77list ‘cat cruises.lis‘ -F"depth,DEPTH>9000,BTC!=1" > really_deep.d
