These scripts are designed to work with files that have been properly formatted according to SeaBASS guidelines (i.e. files that passed FCHECK). Some error checking is performed, but improperly formatted input files could cause these tools to error or behave unexpectedly. Files downloaded from the SeaBASS database should already be properly formatted; however, please email firstname.lastname@example.org dot gov and/or the contact listed in the file's metadata header if you identify problems with specific files.
It is always HIGHLY recommended that before performing calculations with data sets you also check for and read any metadata header comments and/or any documentation accompanying the data files. Special notes and metadata information might impact your analysis.
