Abstract : The first cruise to study chemical (and biological) dynamics in the spring of 1985 off the east coast of the United States. The NORDA Velocity Conductivity, Temperature and Depth profiler (VCTD) was employed to collect basic physical oceanographic measurements in the upper ocean. This report presents the data obtained by the VCTD during this cruise.
