The "DPC$" code have the following states:
- How to determine whether or not to depth correct the XBT data.
- The most recent version of the GTSPP best copy files now include parameters other than temperature and salinity. The files also include information to assist users in determining whether or not to depth correct the XBT data. The best copy files have a DPC$ in the surfacecodes group with codes of DPC$ 01, 02, or 03.

- How can I extract a "tar.gz" or ".tgz" file?
- Files with extension "tar.gz" or ".tgz" are tar files compressed with gzip. On Unix/Linux extract them with:
- gunzip < file.tar.gz | tar -xvf - or gunzip < file.tgz | tar xvf -
- What is data type, TSEAC?"
- TESAC is the name of the code for reporting observations of temperature, salinity and current from a sea station.
- Why does NODC have two ocean profile databases?
- Having two related profile databases may seem unnecessary and redundant but both of these databases serve critical and complementary roles. The first is the Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP) which contains temperature and salinity data, and the second is the World Ocean Database (WOD) which contains data from over 20 variables.
