Map: Goodwin, 1959, insert.
Station Information: Goodwin, 1959, p. 26-67. Latitude and Longitude reported in decimal degrees. Elevation and depth reported in meters. Elevation taken from Kojima, 1964.
Temperature and Depth: Goodwin, 1959, p. 26-67. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. Accuracy of temperature is no worse than 0.05C.
Density: Range of Density Values for region: At 0-2 m range is 0.32-0.54. At 10 m range is 0.46-0.64, see Bentley et al., 1964, (Plates 6 and 7, bar graph). Density reported in g/cm3.
* Flag: Represents how temperature was derived. Values reported as (S) represent a single point measurement. This measurement has not been corrected for short term thermal decay or annual thermal cycle.
** Average Density for 0-2 m. Kojima, 1964.
