    Automated contouring of vertical oceanographic sections using an objective analysis



    This paper describes a group of computer programs developed for contouring vertical sections of oceanographic parameters. The vertical profiles can be constructed from data collected in a variety of ways. The input data for the driver subroutine need not be equally spaced horizontally or vertically. The routines are written in Fortran for a UNIVAC 1108 with an offline Gould Plotter, but can easily be adapted to any computer with a Fortran compiler and a plotter which accepts Calcomp-like commands. The routines are of modular construction.
