gmtlegs - Find cruises in a given region
gmtlegs -Rwest/east/south/north[r] [ -G ] [ -M ] [ -T ] [ -L ] [ -V ]
gmtlegs will report the name of all the cruises that happened to be wholly or partially inside the specified region. As an option, only those cruises that collected a certain type of data can be reported. -R west, east, south, and north specify the Region of interest, and you may specify them in decimal degrees or in [+-]dd:mm[:ss.xxx][W|E|S|N] format. Append r if lower left and upper right map coordinates are given instead of w/e/s/n. The two shorthands -Rg and -Rd stand for global domain (0/360 and -180/+180 in longitude respectively, with -90/+90 in latitude). Alternatively, specify the name of an existing grid file and the -R settings (and grid spacing, if applicable) are copied from the grid.
No space between the option flag and the associated arguments -G Report cruises that collected Gravity data. [Default is any data]. -M Report cruises that collected Magnetics. [Default is any data]. -T Report cruises that collected Topography. [Default is any data]. -L Long output, i.e., cruisenames and data types available. [Default is cruisenames only]. -V Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr [Default runs "silently"].
To find all cruises around Hawaii that collected gravity and topography: gmtlegs -R-162/-152/18/25 -G -T > hawaii_gt.legs To find all cruises with magnetics: gmtlegs -R 0/360/-90/90 -M > all_m.legs
