Abstract : A series of average monthly profiles showing the vertical temperature distribution between the surface and 300 m along eight meridians in the North Atlantic, north of Lat. 20 degrees N, are presented and the major features are identified and described. On the assumption that pronounced horizontal temperature gradients are indicative of ocean currents, the circulation patterns are discussed. (Author)
