Abstract : The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies and sound velocites for the 73 oceanographic stations taken by seven U. S. Coast Guard Cutters occupying Ocean Station BRAVO (centered at 56 deg 30 min N., 51 deg 00 min W.) during August 1964 - August 1965. They were the USCGC COOK INLET, 4-18 August 1964; USCGC BIBB, 1-14 December 1964; USCGC CASCO, 7-28 January 1965; USCGC CASTLE ROCK 24 February-10 March 1965; USCGC YAKUTAT, 2-23 April 1965; USCGC HUMBOLDT, 13 May-2 June 1965; USCGC COOK INLET, 27 June-14 July; and USCGC ESCANABA, 7-23 August 1965. Oceanographic casts of 13-14 Nansen bottles were made to 1500 meters on alternate days when weather conditions permitted. In addition, sampling was successfully extended to near the bottom on at least one station during each patrol. (Author)
