Abstract : The volume covers the eight hydrographic stations completed by R/V BERTHA ANN in Area 6 during Cruises 11, 16, and 17 for the periods of 23 April 1967 to 14 May 1967 and 16 October 1967 to 26 December 1967. Salinities and temperatures obtained at these hydrographic stations are used to determine values of sound velocity throughout the water column which are compared to corresponding data obtained at these same stations by sound velocimeter lowerings. Comparisons are also made between the measured properties during the cruises and those recorded previously in the same region by other sources. (Author)
