Abstract : Oceanic data in the revised MOODS format require transformation into a modified format before they can be used by various processing and analysis routines resident at the NCCOSC RDT&E Division. This document describes a technique developed to modify small data sets into the desired format using an IBM compatible personal computer. Depth increments may be reduced using a smoothing routine to a number of points compatible with the requirements of standard Navy acoustic performance prediction systems. Data editing routines are available.
