for those using Seabird CTDs there is a python tool cnv2nc
delivered by Seabird. There is also a fortran tool doing the same.
It depends a little bit on the specific header format used in our
institute, but takes simply all variables coming from the CTD and
puts them into a netcdf file. Since GPS data are in the file
header, the netcdf-file has a full set of coordinates and in
ferret "use" imports all what you need. If you are interested in
the fortran version, please let me know.

Thank you Pearse,
I do have that format data. So is there any way
to make it gridded data ? Or how to plot these data sets where
all the attributes are as variables.
Hope you doing good Pearse.
It definitely can handle point
location station data, but I read these data in
differently to gridded data.
I read them in as a .txt or .dat file
in column format using the
set data command. So instead of having a gridded
data with 2+ dimensions on each variable, you read in
all information (variables and dimensions) as 1D
It gives you something that looks

providing the update.
wondering that do we (Ferret) have capability to
handle station data ? I have asked this question
few weeks ago when I was working on a research
voyage data of CTD bottle sample and Shipboard CTD
along the track of ship. Russ and you also
suggested some solutions to get a proper netcdf
file for such data but I didn't understand
more thing I also want to compute neutral density
surface so is there any function available for
A new PyFerret and Ferret v7.4.4 are available:
The main purpose of this release is to link with
netCDF 220.127.116.11; some datasets and url's cannot be
used correctly with the newer netCDF 4.6 library.
There are also a few bug fixes, including several
items reported in the Ferret List. We'll answer
those threads to let you know what was done.
Finally, there's a new default color palette for
Ferret. A number of you have been urging this for
a while and we have become convinced. The new
default colormap is "viridis", which is a
Perceptually uniform colormap . I've
attached an example plot.
You can always change your color palette in any
of these ways:
For a single command, with the /PALETTE
For the current session with the PALETTE
rnb2 ! use rnb2 for subsequent commands
unless /palette qualifier is used
For all your PyFerret or Ferret sessions, by
putting a PALETTE command into a
And see the FAQ's for more discussion of color
palettes. We'll be adding more there, including
examples of some of the nice ones available.
