Abstract

This paper presents a compilation of the data sets obtained by CTDs and profiling current meters on board the ships "Meteor" and "Planet" during GATE in the B- and C-Scale Areas (7°-10 °N, 22°-25°W, June 17 to September 24, 1974). The bulk of the CTD data is displayed in the form of isopleths. Selected sets of profiles, outlining special phenomena observed, and profiles of the mean and standard deviation of temperature and salinity are given additionally. Besides examples of actual current profiles, isopleths of the 25 hour mean current components, and isopleths of the vertical shear are presented. The mean current components and their standard deviations are also displayed. Time series presented are suitable for comparison with moored current measurements. The presentation of the data is preceded by a summary of the editing procedures and by a discussion of the data quality.
