Abstract:

Mine Divisions 41, 45, and 85 collected oceanographic data in the Caribbean Sea from August 1967 to August 1968 in support of Project FLOOD. Most of the data were collected in the vicinities of Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Acceptable data included 78 bathythermograms BTs, 22 bottom sediment samples, and 16 water transparency Secchi disc and color Forel scale observations. The data are a useful contribution to knowledge of the marine environment of the Caribbean Sea and will be available to agencies and institutions through the National Oceanographic Data Center.
