The following fields are used to clarify data. At this time the code
 "J", "M" or blank are the only valid data for the fields.
 
   CB_RMK      Char   1.  Remark code for field CB_VOL 'J'=estimated
   CHL_RMK     Char   1.  Remark code for CHLORA 'J'=estimated datum
   EC_B_RMK    Char   1.  Remark code for EC_BOT J=estimated datum
   EC_RMK      Char   1.  Remark code for EC_SURF J-estimated datum
   PHE_RMK     Char   1.  Remark code for PHEOPIG J=estimated datum

These character fields use numeric codes:
   GEAR      Numeric code for sampling gear type
               1= Clarke bumpus sampling gear
               2= Pump sampling gear
 
   TIDE      Numeric code for tide
               1=high slack
               2=ebb
               3=low slack
               4=flood
 
   STATION   Numeric code for station
               see AREFRKI
 
The following units of measurement apply to these fields:
   CB_VOL       calculated cubic meters of river water sampled
   EC_BOT       uS/cm converted to a 25 degree centigrade standard
   EC_SURF      uS/cm converted to a 25 degree centigrade standard
   organisms    number per cubic meter of river/bay water
    (eg CRABZOEA)
   SAMPVOL      ml (sample volume used in the laboratory)
   SECCHI       meters
   STIME        Local time (ie what is on one's watch), 24 hr clock,
                May be PST or PDT depending on the sampling date.
   TEMPF        degree Fahrenheit
   CB_DUR       minutes
