Abstract : This report summarizes data collected in the Eastern Tropical Pacific during the spring of 1979. Vertical profiles through most of the water column were obtained for the following parameters: conductivity, temperature, salinity, nephelometry, total suspended matter, dissolved and particulate organic carbon, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), chlorophyll and phaeopigments, nutrients (nitrate, ammonium, phosphate, silicate), dissolved oxygen and dissolved reduced gases (methane, and nitrous oxide). Results are presented as : (1) tables of measured and derived parameters; (2) depth profiles of unnormalized values, normalized values and normalized rates of change. Descriptions of the collection and analytical procedures are also given.
