  collected
• WHEN - sailing & landing dates
• SHIP - EXPOCODE + aliases
• STATION file (station,lat,lon,date,bottom

CARBOOCEAN Data Records
• All PIs retain identification info
  (sta,cast,bottle)
• Be extra careful with headers, in particular:
• Bottle salinity != CTDSal (measuring more
  bottle salts recommended)
• Temperature != theta
• Pressure != Depth
• Umol/kg != umol/liter
• Ch. Sci. create merged cruise file
