Abstract : Temporal variations of depth, salinity, and oxyty at selected isanosteric surfaces below 1000 m are studied at Ocean Station P (50 degrees N, 145 degrees W, 4200 meters deep) for the period 1960 to 1965. The data are 81 stations made by personnel from the Fisheries Research Board of Canada at Nanaimo, British Columbia. Surfaces of constant potential steric anomaly (isanosteric surfaces) are based on a reference pressure of 4000 db rather than O db to give a better representation of the deep water. (Author)
