A four electrode conductivity instrument was developed to determine variations of conductivity in an ocean environment at a fixed point. A field experiment was conducted in Mission Bay, San Diego, California. Results indicate that the instrument functioned properly and accurately resolved conductivity microstructure. From conductivity and associated temperature data, salinity data was derived which portrays a well mixed salinity structure. Difficulty with a mismatch of time constants between conductivity and temperature instruments prevented the accurate determination of salinity microstructure although there was evidence that one existed.
