In the fall of 1975 a three-ship, multi-investigator, ONR-sponsored study was made of the distribution of fine- and microstructure in the Northwest Atlantic the North Atlantic Fine- and Microstructure Cruise. A variety of sophisticated, highly sensitive instrumentation was used to observe the small scale variability of temperature, salinity and velocity in the ocean. This report summarizes the cruise objectives, describes the instrumentation and gives information concerning the observations and data quality. Author
