Abstract
This report presents the meteorological data acquired by twenty-six radiosondes launched during the hydrographic cruise 0PT0MA11, Leg DII (30 June to 10 July, 1984). To compare the prevailing atmospheric and oceanic conditions the radiosonde potential temperature and specific humidity profiles are plotted with nearly coincident XBT temperature profiles. Also included are: 1) time series plots of hourly dry-bulb and wet-bulb temperatures and hourly wind velocities, 2) an AVHRR image, and 3) National Weather Service surface pressure
