C.4 Multiple Physical Volumes

Storage of a single FITS file on more than one unlabeled tape or on multiple units of any other medium is not universally supported in FITS. One possible way to handle multivolume unlabeled tape was suggested in [1]. A convention for logically grouping on-line FITS HDUs that may physically be located in different sites has been proposed in [16].
