Abstract:

Summary listings of sound velocity and temperature with depth and the respective gradients are presented in two volumes for the area of the North Atlantic Ocean which lies between 20 degrees N and 60 degrees N latitude and between 30 degrees W longitude and the North American Continent. Volume II contains the part between 20 degrees N and 40 degrees N. All data within the confines of Chesapeake Bay are excluded from the listings. Oceanographic data obtained from Nansen bottle casts were used in computation of sound velocity and gradients. These data include all oceanographic stations in the NODC archives within the designated area, except for those stations which were considered unsuitable and were therefore deleted.
