*CNV to ODV Converter

← back to DSM software

The CNV to ODV converter was written to import (filtered, averaged, ...) CTD data processed with SeaBird software into ODV. The output ASCII file can be imported in ODV as ODV-spreadsheet file. Beides converting *cnv files, you can convert bottle data files also into ODV-Spreadsheet format, add additional columns (e.g. concentrations of CH4 , PO4, SiO2, ...) and merge several of these 'complete bottle files' into one file for an easier and faster import into ODV.

So far there is no manual, but it should be self-explanatory. If you have questions, please contact jgreinert(at)
