  • M Magnetometer data structure
  • T Temperature sensor data structure
  • info Information structure for the deployment
Input var Description Default value
fname is the file name of the Daily Diary text file including the complete path name if the file is not in the current working directory or in a directory on the path. The .txt suffix is not needed. N/A
depid is a string containing the deployment identification code assigned to this deployment, for example, mn12_186a. N/A
