Abstract:

Thermal conditions in Monterey Bay during September 1966 through September 1967 and January 1970 through June 1971 were described by comparing direct observations taken at nearly weekly intervals to the long-term 40 years averages, or norms, developed by Lammers 1971. Station locations were distributed throughout the bay with most located over the axis of Monterey Submarine Canyon or in the southern half of the bay. Temperature data from three transects taken out to a distance of some 80 miles in August 1970 were compared to observed thermal conditions in the bay during four quasi-synoptic one to three day periods in August.
