Abstract : A research experiment, conducted aboard the USS SAN PABLO for the purpose of studying temperature structure in the waters of the Tongue of the Ocean from 4 to 20 March 1960 is described. The data have been tabulated and listed as Appendixes to the report. Analysis of the data has not been completed; however, a preliminary examination shows that internal waves play a large part in the fluctuation of thermal structure in this area. (Author)
