DATA SET NAMES:
     Station.94     Basic station information common to most other files (1994)
     Mesozoo.94     Abundance of copepods and chlorophyll concentrations
     Macrozoo.94    Abundance of mysids and amphipods
     CTD.94         Data from Seabird CTD casts.  Most of the data are averages
                    of two casts, one taken on arrival at the station and one
                    before the pump sample.
