Description:
  • Abstract:
    •         Sea-Bird Electronics CTDs were utilized during cruises conducted between March 2010 and April 2011 in Vieques Sound, Puerto Rico, Virgin Passage USVI, and the surrounding region.  The recovered profile data are presented here in an ACII format.
            
  • Purpose:
    •         These oceanographic data were collected for the purpose of examining flow through Virgin Passage (between Culebra, Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, USVI) and into and out of Vieques Sound (between Culebra, Puerto Rico and Vieques, Puerto Rico) in the US Caribbean, and in examining water properties of the surrounding ocean.
