Abstract : Data were obtained on eight cruises of R/V GERDA and one cruise of R/V PANDA. All the cruises were carried out in Florida Straits and the eastern part of the Gulf of Mexico during the first half of 1960. The general purpose of the cruises was to provide (a) data for the study of the kinematics of the water movements in Florida Straits and adjacent waters, with particular attention to seasonal variations; and (b) environmental information for biological studies. Observations of currents made with drogues on Cruises G 6001, 6004, 6010, 6012, and P 6002 are not included, since they will be the subject of an analytical study to be submitted later. (Author)
