Abstract : Program WAHOO uses a Sun SPARC 10 minicomputer to process and analyze temperature, salinity, and sound speed data in various formats. The data, extracted from the Master Oceanographic Observation Data Set (MOODS) files maintained by the Naval Oceanographic Office, must be reformatted into regional files prior to analysis. This document provides guidelines required to process and analyze the MOODS data, thus providing valuable information required to characterize the oceanic and acoustic properties of an area.
