NODC Standard Format Microbiological Degradation (F059) Data (1973 -1980)
Entry ID: NODC_F059

Abstract: This format is designed to support microbiological studies of bacteria,
microbiota, and fungi. There are twelve data record types used to report
cruise and station information, position and time, physical, chemical
and environmental parameters, and data records for the microbiological
studies. Each data record is 80 characters in length, sorted by station
and sequence numbers to maintain the proper order. The first nine
columns for all records are to be used for file type (columns 1-3) and
file identifier (columns 4-9). The file identifier, to be assigned by
the originator, is a unique originator id for each data submission. After
submission, the NODC reassigns to this field a unique NODC identifier
for internal use.
