The report contains the observed and interpolated temperature and salinity data plus the computed sigma-t, geopotential anomalies, and sound velocities for 68 oceanographic stations occupied by seven U.S. Coast Guard cutters at Ocean Station BRAVO centered at 56 deg 30 min N., 51 deg 00 min W. during October 1965-September 1966. They were the USCGC BARATARIA, 11 October-1 November 1965 USCGC MENDOTA, 9-28 January 1966 USCGC DUANE, 24 February-13 March 1966 USCGC HUMBOLDT, 15 March-3 April 1966 USCGC CASCO, 29 April-20 May 1966 USCGC OWASCO, 15 June-4 July 1966 USCGC ABSECON, 22 August-13 September 1966. Casts of 13-14 Nansen bottles were made to 1,500 meters on alternate days when weather and operating conditions permitted. In addition, sampling was successfully extended to near the bottom at one or two stations during each patrol. Author
