UMBS Tidas Buoy Metadata

Just a few emails to document. But, remember this group as one that could potentially teach others about metadata standards.

Hi Susan,

I'll take a stab at this.

DP - The Depth of the corresponding Temperature Profile Node (in meters)
TP - Temperature Profile Node
TP001 - 14.34 ft
TP002 - 23.26 ft
TP003 - 32.19 ft
TP004 - 41.11 ft
TP005 - 50.00 ft
TP006 - 58.92 ft
TP007 - 67.85 ft
TP008 - 76.77 ft
Note: Previous communication with Heidi indicates that the TP006, TP007, and TP008 should be used with caution as they may have been in the muck.

FM - Appears to be a metadata standard code. Here's what I dug up via Google. I've attached a document located here: ftp://compsweb.marine.usf.edu/pub/misc/eriks/TESAC%20XML%20tags.rt

---------------------------------------
For all platforms that measure salinity and/or water temperature and/or currents, include data with these XML tags:

<fm64iii> set to 820 if temperature and/or currents are measured

set to 830 if salinity is also measured

<fm64xx> set to 99

<fm64k1> set to 7, indicates measurements are at fixed depths

<fm64k2> 0, indicates salinity is not measured

1, indicates salinity accuracy > 0.02 ppt.

2, indicates salinity accuracy < 0.02 ppt.

Quoting Susan Hendricks :

Hi Kyle:

Hope you are doing well.

I have been working with this year's DL buoy data. There are some
parameters however that I can't quite figure out such as the ones listed
below. I sent this to Heidi, but she's so busy, I was wondering if you
could decipher them? Particularly the FMs, DPs TPs; the YSIs are
straightforward as were the meteorological data.

Thanks,

Susan

Subject: column/parameter codes

Hi again Heidi,

I was able to download the data and separate 2011 from 2010. I do, however,
need to know what the following column headings represent. Some of them are
obviously depths and others are YSI parameters...Are all the YSI readings
(except for temp) collected at 1 m depth?

FM64XX ()

FM64K1 ()
