Abstract : This atlas presents the hydrographic (CTD) data collected during the California Undercurrent (CUC) project, which spanned three years (April 1988 - April 1991) and 19 cruises. The study area consisted primarily of a transection of 22 CTD sites extending offshore from Point Sur, California, to an intersection point with California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCoFi) line 67 and thence along that line to a point approximately 200 km offshore. The study area also included approximately 20 more CTD sites scattered in and about Monterey Bay. The CTD data are presented graphically and in tabular form for selected pressures.
