MetadataShow full item record
The present paper forms a sequel to the account of the temperature of the same region (Bigelow, 1933)... the continental shelf between the offings of Cape Cod (longitude about 70°) and Chesapeake Bay;-extended southward, for occasional months, to the offing of Cape Hatteras; and with such discussion of conditions along the continental slope as is justified by occasional profiles.

Thomas; Gordon, Arnold L.; Hodges, Benjamin A.; Jessup, Andrew T.; Kessler, William S.; Rainville, Luc; Shcherbina, Andrey Y. (The Oceanography Society, 2015-03)One of the notable features of the global ocean is that the salinity of the North Atlantic is about 1 psu higher than that of the North Pacific. This contrast is thought to be due to one of the large asymmetries in the ...
