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 40'N to 39 deg 20'N and 123 deg 30'W to 125 deg 30'W. 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. Keywords: Sea water temperature, Electrical conductivity, Oceanographic data, California current, Mesoscale eddies, Cold filaments. (EDC)
