Among the data of various layer depth range obsevation, CTD, BT, etc being provided from J-DOSS, some wrong instrumental codes were found in the XCTD data observed by JMA between 1998-2004. JODC amended data attached with the instrumental code (SC) of CTD to the instrumental code (SX) of XCTD and then reposted.

Two type errors as below were found in the MGD77 data being provided from J-DOSS. JODC amended all error data and renewed datain the MGD77.

  1. One type error was data (file starting with a survey IDs "HM9" ans "HT8") observed by survey vessel "MEIYO" and "TAKUYO" belonged to JCG in the period of 1986 through 1996. Because the was input shifting the geomagnetism data by one column.
  2. Another type error was data (file starting with a survey ID "JARE") observed by the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) in the period of 1985 through 1992. Bathymetry value was input in the column of the turnaround time of sound wave.

Those who are using the data which falls under the table below are requested to download again from J-DOSS for renewal. HM910111 HM910308 HM910503 HM910614
