Abstract:

During late fall of 1984, the RB New Horizon occupied 230 CTD stations in the central and northern Gulf of California. The primary objectives of the cruise were to define the vertical fine structure characteristics in the high current area near Tiburon Island as well as in the Guaymas Basin to examine the structure and evoluation of quasi-permanent density fronts found near Tiburon Island and to examine the early winter hydrographic characteristics in the northern part of the Gulf, in anticipation of the late winter cruise, Pichicuco 7, carried out in March of 1985 Bray, Robles and Carrasco, 1986. In this report we present individual profiles of temperature, salinity and density for each station, along with regional composite diagrams of potential temperature vs salinity. A detailed discussion of the techniques used to process the data is also included. Keyword Graphs.
