2005 Ocean Temperature Section

 


Vertical ocean Temperature section along the line segments connecting CTD stations
were calculated from the North Pole CTD Survey during April 2005 and extended Canada-ward by three Switchyard Twin Otter Stations. The section has a slight fold at NPEO station 7, the junction of the two surveys.  Numbered balls (red for NPEO and magenta for Switchyard) label actual CTD stations along the section. Click on these to view the temperature and salinity profiles in a separate window.  A  Salinity section is also available.
