DOS based CO2SYS program, error checking, typographical error information, web based CO2SYS program


University of Montana


A web-based version of CO2SYS program has been implemented to replace the current DOS based version system. The user does not have to download anything to a local computer, instead they can run the calculations online freely. For this new designed program, all the user inputs and options are displayed in one single window instead of several small black and white DOS screens. All the calculation results are listed in a single page, as well. The user can change any inputs and constants before and after the data calculation, i.e., recalculation. Much more powerful error checking has been built into this web-based system. It also provides useful directions and guidance for the user. The user can get access to the helpful information for each input and constant. Typographical error information, which is listed separately from their individual reference paper, is incorporated with the reference through the hyperlinks. Moreover, this new system presents an attractive and dynamic appearance to users.
