Abstract : Physical oceanographic conditions observed in northern Baffin Bay during mid summer 1970 are described. Spatial distributions of temperature and salinity are discussed using vertical sections and horizontal plan views. Circulation is discussed with the aid of dynamic topographies, temperature-salinity analyses and isentropic diagrams, and computed geostrophic volume transports are presented. Gross physical oceanographic conditions observed during mid summer 1970 are compared with those observed during previous summers. (Author)
