This report summarizes data collected during periodic hydrographic surveys made in 1965 over the continental shelf and slope of the northeast Gulf of Mexico. The survey region extends from the Mississippi Delta to Cape San Blas, Florida about 300 nautical miles and offshore to about the 1,000 fathom depth contour 100 to 110 nautical miles. Hydrographic observations consisted mainly of vertical profiles of temperature and salinity obtained by means of bathythermographs and salinity determinations of water samples taken at selected depths or by a salinitytemperaturedepth STD instrument. In addition, several thousand drift bottles were released at selected locations in the survey area. Author
