Abstract : This volume contains the machine-generated point plots of the digitized bathythermograph (BT) traces and their approximation by three-line segments. These segments are only given if some specified conditions are fulfilled. To make the information drawn from this approximation readily available, each figure is accompanied by a table containing - apart from general information - the slope of the three segments and their intersection points, the temperature gradient of transients, and the standard error of estimate for the first line segment. A detailed description of the different phases as well as the track charts are given. The meteorological data measured simultaneously with each BT are compiled.
