Seismic Data Record Format Program

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00472

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Description

These data, supplied by the investigation team, consist of a BCD magnetic tape program that is used to read the EDR tapes described in data set 75-083C-08B. This program (EDRFMT) was written to remove the control words and to write the output as card images, one record to an image. This was necessary because the EDR tapes were written in BCD by a Fortran program on a Univac 1108. When data are written by a Fortran program on that machine, only one record format is permissible, and the control words are in binary, not BCD, which complicates the task of reading the EDR tapes.
