Abstract : This data report presents hydrographic (CTD) data collected during the Operational Oceanography class (OC-3570) cruise of 22-25 October 1995. The study area encompassed a region from Point Lobos (off Carmel, Ca.) south to Cape San Martin (35 deg 53 min N), extending from the coast to approximately the l000 m isobath. The survey consisted of 15 across-shore transections, each made up of six CTD stations nominally located above the 50, 100, 250, 500, 750, and 1000 meter isobaths, respectively. A total of 83 full-depth casts were completed. The data are presented primarily in tabular form for selected pressures. Some sea surface horizontal maps, as well as a T/S plot, are also presented.
