Abstract : The Coastal Transition Zone (CTZ) experiment was designed to investigate the characteristics of the transition region between coastal upwelling and open ocean off the west coast of North America. The special area of interest was off Northern California. The goals of this small-scale surveys were to examine in detail the evolution of a single feature and to determine its reaction to various forcing conditions. This report contains temperature salinity, sigma-t and dissipation profiles from the Rapid Sampling Vertical Profiler for six transects as part of the CTZ pilot experiment, June 1987. Keywords: Oceanographic data; Thermistors; Sea water temperature.
