Abstract : The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data, plus the computed sigma plus or minus, geopotential anomalies and sound velocities for 125 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 October 1966-October 1967. They were the USCGC DUANE, 8-28 October 1966; USCGC McCULLOCH, 24 November-12 December 1966; USCGC HUMBOLDT, 7-31 January 1967; USCGC BIBB, 24 February-14 March 1967; USCGC ESCANABA, 6-24 April 1967; USCGC SPENCER, 27 May-6 June 1967; USCGC SEBAGO, 29 June-21 July 1967; USCGC McCULLOCH, 14 August-5 September 1967; USCGC SPENCER, 29 September-23 October 1967. Casts of 14 levels were made to 1,500 meters when weather and operating conditions permitted. An attempt was made to extend sampling to near the bottom once on each patrol. (Author)
