Abstract : Vertical cross-sections of temperature in the Sargasso Sea and across the Gulf Stream and a warm core ring were obtained with a towed thermistor chain in September 1981. The thermistors were distributed in the upper 70 to 1 20 m during three runs. Salinity was also measured at two locations on the towed chain and in the ship's lab. A temperature inversion of about 4 deg C was found near the edge of the warm core ring. (Author)
