Abstract : The report is basically an atlas presenting diagrams and charts of temperature, salinity, oxygen, nutrient, and relative baroclinic current data for the eastern tropical North Pacific. Special emphasis is on the oxygen deficient layer in this region and a number of the charts constitute an isentropic study of this layer. Two of the included properties, nitrate deficits and equivalent nitrate, are particularly appropriate for investigations dealing with denitrification in these waters, and the methods for calculating them are described.
