Abstract:

This data report presents hydrographic CTD data from a cruise off Point arena, CA during 15-28 June 1987. The study area was between 37 deg 40N to 39 deg 20N and 123 deg 30W to 125 deg 30W. The sampling plan criss-crossed a cold filament rooted near Point Arena, as observed using satellite AVHRR Sea Surface Temperature imagery. A total of 122 CTD casts to 500 m and 30 XBT drops to 750 m were made. The data are presented as individual vertical profiles, vertical sections, and property distributions on horizontal surfaces. The data were collected as part of the ONR Coastal Transition Zone CTZ program to study cold filaments, squirts, jets, and mesoscale eddies in the region.
