Abstract : This technical note documents a program written specifically for the HP-41CV calculator to convert a bathythermograph profile to a sound speed profile. The format of the report follows the guidelines set forth by the Navy Tactical Support Activity, Fleet Mission Program Library. The program documented herein differs from existing calculator programs used for a similar purpose (Kerr, 1982) in that an archival salinity profile library is included with the program. Magnetic card copies of the program and salinity profile library may be obtained from the Naval Oceanographic Office, Code 9200. (Author)
