Abstract : The manual provides instructions for coding and keypunching drift bottle data on a standard format. In these instructions, the term 'drift bottle' includes ballasted and unballasted drift bottles, sea bed drifters, drift cards, and similar devices. The card used by the NODC in this system is the standard 80-column punch card. A single format card is used to record both the release and release-recovery data. Drift bottle data will be available from the NODC on magnetic tape, punch cards, or as listings. (Author)
