Abstract:

A joint U.S.-Canadian midwinter oceanographic expedition was made to the waters north of the Greenland-Scotland ridges aboard the Canadian scientific vessel CSS Hudson during February-April 1982, principally in the region between Jan Mayen and Spitsbergen. The goals were 1 to observe conditions in the surface waters in winter, especially in the Greenland Sea and in the northern Norwegian SEa 2 to exploit useful tracer signals such as salinity, dissolved oxygen, dissolved silica and other nutrients, tritium, freons, and isotopes of cesium and 3 to map regional variations in the various water masses. This volume reports data collected aboard the Hudson from the ConductivityTemperatureDept h CTDrosette casts and results of alkalinity, total inorganic carbon, and tritium analyses. The data from each CTD cast are displayed in two standard formats 1 Temperature and salinity versus pressure from 0 to 600 db, or less at shallow stations and 2 Potential temperature versus salinity for all data colder than 3 C, with salinities from 34.70 - 35.06. Keywords Sea water Oceanographic data.
