In support of the Tactical Oceanography Prediction Experiment an extensive series of thermal structure measurements have been made in the Iceland and Greenland Seas with emphasis on the Iceland-Faeroe frontal region. A preliminary analysis of these measurements is given. The goal of the thermal analysis task was primarily to produce near-real time objective maps of the ocean thermal structure on a local microcomputer. These uniform fields were to be available for 1 displays to aid further data gathering efforts, 2 boundary and initial conditions for numerical models, and 3 environmental fields for input to the range-dependent acoustic models. The figures shown in this report are representative of the output generated by this task.
