1. NAME AND TITLE
SORA: A Code System for Storage and Retrieval of Data from Radionuclide Analyses.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; IBM 360/370.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
SORA facilitates conversion of raw field results and chemical analyses data into a computerized
data base management system.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
SORA accepts input for any particular situation of interest. Input consists of five components:
specification of units for the output report, a description of the general location under consideration,
a description of the variables included in the data, an explicit definition of individual site coordinates,
and results of radiochemical analyses for each specific location and sampling date. An organized hard
copy of the available results is generated.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
One year of field data at 50 locations requires about 20 seconds CPU time.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
SORA is operable on the IBM 360/370 computers. It uses >270 K of memory.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler and a standard operating system are required.

11. CONTENTS OF CODE PACKAGE
Included are the referenced document and one (1.2MB) DOS diskette which contains the source
code and sample problem input and output.
