Abstract
  • Wecoma cruise W8705A was conducted in May 1987 as part of the pilot study for the Coastal Transition Zone project. CTD observations were made in the coastal transition zone off northern California between 37.5°N and 41.5°N. Stations were planned along three alongshore transects, at distances of 60, 90 and 150 km from the coast. Strong winds (with speeds up to 35 kts) prevailed during the survey, but 98 stations were completed successfully. They were concentrated along lines 60, 90 and 150 km from the coast. Maximum sampling depth at most stations was 500 m. Temperature, salinity, light transmission and fluorescence were measured at all stations. This report presents vertical profile plots and tabulations of-data at selected depths for each station; vertical sections of temperature, salinity, and potential density anomaly (sigma-theta) for the long alongshore sections; and maps of temperature, salinity, potential density anomaly, dynamic topography and fluorescence at selected depths.
