Abstract or Summary
  • Optical and hydrographic observations were made at two meridional sections across the Cromwell Current at 92°00’ and 91°40’W during February 1969. The distribution of hydrographic and optical properties near the Galapagos Islands is described. Beneath the thermocline the Cromwell Current is characterized by deepening of the light-scattering isolines. Above the thermocline, shallowing of the light-scattering isolines results in a surface minimum in light scattering directly above the core of the current. Splitting of the core of the current into a northern and less clearly indicated southern branch is inferred from the horizontal distributions of temperature, oxygen content, and light scattering just beneath the depth of maximum horizontal velocity.
