Abstract : Observations are reported from the cruises of the ships Crest and Horizon. Surface pressures were measured with Wallace and Tiernan type FA-126 aneroid barometers which were checked against Hg barometers at shore stations. Temperature and moisture content were measured with standard Weather Bureau sling psychrometers. Magneto-type 3-cup anemometers were used for wind observations. Visual observations were made of waves, visibility, weather, and clouds. Pibals and rabals were taken when sea and sky conditions permitted.
