Abstract : The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies and sound velocities for 76 oceanographic stations occupied by three U. S. Coast Guard Cutters at Ocean Station NOVEMBER (centered at 30 degrees 00 minutes N, 140 degrees 00 minutes W) during July 1966-February 1967. They were the CGC GRESHAM, 31 July-24 August 1966; CGC KLAMATH, 11 September-1 October; CGC WACHUSETT, 19 November-3 December 1966; and CGC GRESHAM, 10-28 February 1967. Daily casts of 13-14 Nansen bottles were made to 1500 meters when weather conditions permitted. In addition, sampling was successfully extended to near the bottom on at least one station during each patrol. (Author)
