Abstract : The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies, and sound velocities for 89 oceanographic stations occupied by four U.S. Coast Guard cutters at ocean station ECHO (centered at 35 degrees N., 48 degrees W.) during September 1966-October 1967. They were the USCGC YAKUTAT (WHEC 380), 21 September-13 October 1966; USCGC MCCULLOCH (WHEC 386), 4-25 February 1967; USCGC ANDROSCOGGIN (WHEC 68), 1-20 June 1967; USCGC ABSECON (WHEC 374), 17 July-6 August 1967; USCGC MCCULLOCH, 27 September-13 October 1967. Casts of 14 Nansen bottles were made daily to 1500 meters where weather and operating conditions permitted. In addition, sampling was successfully extended to near the bottom at one station during each patrol. (Author)
