Abstract:

This report presents hydrographic and chemical data from the eastern tropical North Pacific Ocean collected in January 1977 aboard Oregon State Universitys OSU RV WECOMA during Leg I of Cruise WELOC 77. The purpose of the cruise, WELOC-77-I, was to investigate the distributions of dissolved nitrous oxide and molecular hydrogen in an oceanic environment characterized by an extensive oxygen minimum layer which is thought to be the major denitrification site in the world ocean. Accordingly, the research effort was concentrated on studying the distributions of variables at stations located around the core of the oxygen minimum.
