The temperature profiles obtained by AXBT on a flight from Oahu to Kodiak on 18 March 1970 are presented together with the temperature section and the sound velocity section obtained by calculation using probable salinity values as derived from other sources. The resulting near-surface, short-range sound transmission conditions are described and their relative importance in the long-range transmission of sound is discussed. A detailed description is provided of the method which has been developed to plot temperature profiles from the magnetic tape record of AXBT drops with output accuracy of one-tenth degree C at each four m of depth.
