Abstract : The first systematic study of physical oceanographic characteristics of the fjord inlets of Chile was carried out by the Institute of Oceanography of the University of British Columbia during March 1970 as Phase V of the Hudson 70 Round-the-Americas Expedition. Observations were made of temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen at 175 stations in 32 inlets and in the passage outside them, and soundings were made along 3500 km of track. The sounding data are presented as longitudinal sections, and water properties are summarized in temperature-salinity and temperature-dissolved oxygen correlation plots and characteristic diagrams; comparisons are made with observations for the British Columbia and Alaska inlets.
