Abstract : The observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies, and sound velocities are presented for 202 oceanographic stations occupied during thirteen Coast Guard cruises to Ocean Station DELTA (centered at 44 degrees 00 minutes N, 41 degrees 00 minutes W) between 27 August 1967 and 25 August 1968. The surface layer (300 m) at OS DELTA is characterized by a complex structure because of the proximity of the North Atlantic Current and seasonal atmospheric variations. (Author)
