This is a data report which presents hydrographic (CTD) data from a cruise off Point Arena, CA during 5-19 July 1988. The study area was between 37 deg 2 min N to 39 deg 21 min N and 123 deg 20 min W to 126 deg 20 min W. The sampling plan consisted of a grid of six alongshore transects 40 km apart, with 5 to 9 stations approximately 25km apart along each transect. The sampling grid was occupied twice during the cruise, starting each time at the southeast corner of the study area. A total of 114 CTD to 500m and 16 XBT drops to 450m 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 Program to study cold filaments in the region
