Abstract : From April 29, 1979 to May 6, 1979 a total of 88 casts were made with a CTD (Conductivity, Temperature and Depth) instrument at the drifting ice station Fram I. Profiles were taken at least twice a day from the surface to 700 m and at more closely spaced intervals during special phases of the experiment. A separate helicopter C/STD survey was also conducted during the experiment and the resulting data were reported separately. Static calibration of the temperature, conductivity and depth sensors was provided by bottle and reversing thermometer data. Least squares, best-fit polynomials, whose parameters were temperature (T), conductivity (C) and depth (D) converted the observed data to final data. Standard level listings of temperature, potential temperature, salinity, sigma-t, specific volume anomaly, dynamic height and sound velocity are given for each cast along with plotted profiles of temperature, salinity and sigma-t. Nested profiles of temperature and salinity are also provided.
