The PARKA 1 acoustic-oceanographic experiment was conducted in the North Pacific Ocean during July, August, and September, 1968. A total of 693 XBT observations, 427 AXBT observations, 232 hourly thermistor averages, and 32 SVP observations, collected during PARKA 1, have survived the years and are presented here. The thermistor data were converted to sound speed using archival salinity data. These data, collected during the period 23 July - 23 September, document mid to late summer oceanographic conditions. Some of the data were taken verbatim from a previous publication. To minimize cost, the data are presented with a minimum of discussion andor editing.
