Abstract : The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies and sound velocities for 136 oceanographic stations occupied by U.S. Coast Guard cutters at Ocean Station DELTA (centered at 44 deg N., 41 deg 00 min W.) during July 1966-August 1967. They were the USCGC ESCANABA (WHEC 64), 15 July-2 August 1966; USCGC CAMPBELL (WHEC 32), 27 August-16 September 1966; USCGC HUMBOLDT (WHEC 372), 12 October-2 November 1966; USCGC CHINCOTEAGUE (WHEC 375), 26 November-17 December 1966; USCGC DUANE (WHEC 33), 10-31 January 1967; USCGC CASCO (WHEC 370), 20 Mar-11 April 1967; USCGC OWASCO (WHEC 39), 26 May-17 June 1967; and USCGC SPENCER (WHEC 36), 11 July-3 August 1967. Daily casts of 14 to 15 Nansen bottles were made to a desired depth of 1,500 meters when weather conditions permitted. (Author)
