Abstract : The report contains oceanographic data based primarily upon cruises in the Gulf of Mexico. The data represent hydrographic casts obtained either with the standard Nansen bottle and reversing thermometer equipment or with the Bissett-Berman salinity-temperature and depth data acquisition system. The series of cruises was planned in an effort to get synoptic pictures on the temperature-depth structure of the Gulf in the various seasons. (Author)
