Abstract : A guide to the effective formatting of oceanographic data variables is submitted. Data recording is conceived as a process of counting discrete 'confidence measure' intervals over the range of measures used to describe a data variable. Formulae are provided defining the minimum count of intervals required to divide the range, and for calculating the minimum size of a binary number field chosen to contain the interval counter.
