List of variables included in this dataset:

COLUMN	HEADER			EXPLANATION
1.	GROUP/SHIP:		AOML_Brown for all underway data from the Ron Brown.
2.	CRUISE_DESIGNATION: 	Cruise ID (e.g., RBYYYYnn where RB = Ron Brown,
				YYYY= the four digit year, and nn = the cruise number for
				that year).
3.	JD_GMT:			Decimal year day.
4.	DATE_DDMMYYYY:		GMT date.  The date format has been changed to comply
				with the IOCCP recommendations.
5.	TIME_HH:MM:SS:		GMT time.
6.	LAT_DEC_DEGREE:		Latitude in decimal degrees (negative values are in the southern hemisphere).
7.	LONG_DEC_DEGREE:	Longitude in decimal degrees (negative values are in the western hemisphere).
8.	xCO2W_PPM:		Mole fraction of CO2 (dry) in the equilibrator
				headspace at equilibrator temperature (Teq) in parts
				per million.
9.	xCO2A_PPM:		Mole fraction of CO2 in air in parts per million.
10.	PRES_EQUIL_hPa:		Barometric pressure in the lab in hectopascals (1
				hectopascal = 1 millibar).
11.	PRES_SEALEVEL_hPa:	Barometric pressure corrected to sea level from the ship’s barometer in hectopascals (1 hectopascal = 1 millibar).
12.	EqTEMP_C:		Temperature in equilibrator water in degrees
				centigade.  Temperature in equilibrator measured with
				a calibrated thermistor.
13.	SST(TSG)_C:		Temperature from the ship's thermosalinograph in
				degrees centigrade.
14.	SAL(TSG)_PERMIL:	Salinity from the ship's thermosalinograph on the
				Practical Salinity Scale.
15.	WATER_FLOW_L/MIN:	Water flow rate through the equilibrator in liters per minute.
16.	GAS_FLOW_IR_ML/MIN:	Gas flow through the sample cell of the Licor IR analyzer in milliliters per minute.
17.	TEMP_IR_C:		Temperature in the Licor sample cell in degrees centigrade.
18.	PRES_IR_hPa:		Barometric pressure in the lab in hectopascals (1
				hectopascal = 1 millibar). The Licor in this system does not include a pressure sensor so this field is the same as # 10 above.
19.	SHIP_HEADING_TRUE_DEGREE:	Ship’s heading in true degrees from the ship’s scientific computing system.
20.	SHIP_SPEED_KNOT:	Ship’s speed in knots from the ship’s scientific computing system.
21.	WIND_DIR_REL_DEGREE:	Relative wind direction in degrees from the ship’s scientific computing system.
22.	WIND_SPEED_REL_M/S:	Relative wind speed in meters per second from the ship’s scientific computing system.
23.	fCO2W@SST_uatm:		Fugacity of CO2 in sea water in microatmospheres
				calculated as outlined below.
24.	QC_FLAG_WATER:		Quality control flag for fCO2W@SST measurement.  2 = good, 3 = questionable, 4 = bad.
25.	fCO2A_uATM:		Fugacity of CO2 in air in microatmospheres 
				calculated as outlined below.
24.	QC_FLAG_AIR:		Quality control flag for fCO2A measurement.  2 = good, 3 = questionable, 4 = bad.
27.	dfCO2_uATM:		Sea water fCO2 - air fCO2 in microatmospheres.  This
				uses the average air value for the current hour.
28.	FLUORO_uG/l:		Measurement from the ship’s Turner 10AU fluorometer in micrograms per liter.
29.	WIND_SPEED_TRUE_M/S:	True wind speed in meters per second from the ship’s scientific computing system.
30.	WIND_DIR_TRUE_DEGREE:	True wind direction in degrees from the ship’s scientific computing system.
31.	AIR_TEMP_C:		Outside air temperature from the ship’s scientific computing system.
