Abstract : The report presents a complete description of the programming aspects of the GEOPS program. Written in FORTRAN IV for the IBM-7094 computer, the program utilizes full core storage and ten magnetic tapes during its execution. The glossary of symbols contains all those eimportant to the computational logic. Program flow is described both from an overall and from an individual routine viewpoint. Compilation procedures, computational logic, and input-output specifications are presented. The reader should, at any time, have reference to an actual listing of the program. Two associated, supplementary programs, an equinox tape generator and an input data pre-processor, are also described in this report. (Author)
