Abstract : High precision, high resolution sound speed and temperature profile sequences are presented for 7 near-synoptic stations in the Anegada passage region; 8 near-synoptic stations in the deep passages adjoining Martinique (St. Lucia and Dominica channels); and 4 stations in the Atlantic about a degree east of the Antillean islands. Microstructure of the waters and short-time variability are emphasized. (Author)
