NAME


mgd77info - Extract information about MGD77 files

SYNOPSIS


mgd77info NGDC-ids [ [m|e] ] [ [m|e] ] [ -Iignore ] [ f[item]|r|e|h ] [ [v] ] [ [level] ]

Note: No space is allowed between the option flag and the associated arguments.

DESCRIPTION


mgd77info reads <legid>.[mgd77|nc] files and produces a single record of information about
each cruise specified. The information includes beginning and end times, total track
distances in km, longitude and latitude range, and the total number of geophysical
observations. Optionally, choose instead to see the original MGD77 header meta-data
section or its individual members.

If you need to know which tracks are crossing through a given region and what kinds of
geophysical observations are available, consider using the x2sys tools to set up a tracks
index data base (see x2sys_init for more information).

REQUIRED ARGUMENTS


NGDC-ids
Can be one or more of five kinds of specifiers:

1. 8-character NGDC IDs, e.g., 01010083, JA010010etc., etc.

2. 2-character <agency> codes which will return all cruises from each agency.

3. 4-character <agency><vessel> codes, which will return all cruises from those
vessels.

4. =<list>, where <list> is a table with NGDC IDs, one per line.

5. If nothing is specified we return all cruises in the data base.

(See mgd77info -L for agency and vessel codes). The ".mgd77" or ".nc" extensions
will automatically be appended, if needed (use -I to ignore certain file types).
Cruise files will be looked for first in the current directory and second in all
directories listed in $MGD77_HOME/mgd77_paths.txt [If $MGD77_HOME is not set it
will default to $GMT_SHAREDIR/mgd77].

OPTIONAL ARGUMENTS


-C[m|e]
List abbreviations for all columns present in the MGD77[+] files. Append m or e to
limit the display to the MGD77 standard or MGD77+ extended set only.

-E[m|e]
Give a one-line summary for each cruise listed.

-Mf[item]|r|e|h
List the meta-data (header) and (if present) the MGD77+ history for each cruise.
Append f for a formatted display. This will list individual parameters and their
values, one entry per output line, in a format that can be searched using standard
UNIX text tools. Alternatively, append the name of a particular parameter (you
only need to give enough characters - starting at the beginning - to uniquely
identify the item). Give - to display the list of all parameter names. You may also
specify the number of a parameter. For the raw, punchcard-formatted MGD77 original
header block, append r instead. For the MGD77+ E77 status, append e instead.
Finally, for the MGD77+ history, append h instead.

-Iignore
Ignore certain data file formats from consideration. Append a|c|t to ignore MGD77
ASCII, MGD77+ netCDF, or plain tab-separated ASCII table files, respectively. The
option may be repeated to ignore more than one format. [Default ignores none].

-L[v] No cruise information is listed. Instead, we just display a list of the GEODAS
institution 2-character codes and their names. Optionally, append v to also
display the vessels and their 4-character codes for each institution. The following
is the list of institutions: (01) LAMONT (LDEO), (02) WOODS HOLE O.I., (03) NOAA,
(04) US ARMY, (05) NEW ZEALAND, (06) US GEOL. SURVEY, (07) OREGON ST. UNIV, (08)
U.HAWAII SOEST, (09) US NAVY, (10) UNIV OF TEXAS, (11) RICE UNIV., (12) CANADA,
(13) UNIV OF CONN., (14) U.MIAMI (RSMAS), (15) SCRIPPS INST.OC, (16) CHINA, (17) U
RHODE ISLAND, (18) DUKE UNIVERSITY, (19) UNITED KINGDOM, (20) U.WASHINGTON, (22)
WESTERN GEOPHY., (23) TEXAS A&M UNIV., (24) AUSTRALIA, (25) MONACO, (29) RUSSIA,
(30) SPAIN, (35) NIMA, (58) NETHERLANDS, (60) MIN MGMT SVC, (63) ISRAEL, (67)
