This report contains the data and analyses of all the known temperature and salinity observations made in the Persian Gulf. Charts previously published have been reproduced along with each authors comments on the temperature-salinity regime and its relationship to other environmental factors as determined by the particular sets of observations available for study at the time. An analysis of recent temperature-salinity observations taken since 1950 has been prepared and is included charts for each observation series are presented for the surface, 10-meter, 20-meter, and 30-meter levels. The position or location of observations are shown the appendixes contain the observational data upon which the analyses are based. The distribution of bathythermograph data by 1 degree squares has been charted and included. Results of a 1961 survey NODC Cruise 31865 were received and the processing completed just before going to press. These are included in order that this document might be as complete as possible analyses for these data are not presented.
