Abstract or Summary
  • Wecoma cruise W8807A was conducted in late July and early August 1988 as part of the Coastal Transition Zone project. CTD observations were made over a standard grid in the coastal transition zone off northern California between 37°N and 39.5°N that was occupied repeatedly during June, July and August; this cruise completed the sixth survey. A total of 88 CTD stations were completed successfully; 68 of these stations were at standard grid positions. Additional sections were added at the southwest corner and the north side of the grid, and along the northern portion of an alongshore line occupied four times in 1987. 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), and maps of temperature, salinity, potential density anomaly, and dynamic topography. Wecoma cruise W8806B (28 June to 24 July 1988) completed 13 transects along the D-line making primarily microstructure and towed thermistor chain observations, but CTD observations were also made. A total of 51 CTD stations were completed. The vertical profile plots and standard depth listings of the CTD data are presented in this report.
