Precision Sound Velocity Profiles in the Ocean - Volume 5: Sound speed and temperature of Bermuda Waters in Autumn and Winter from October 1964 to March 1966 (NCEI Accession 7000472)

A collection of high-resolution, precision simultaneous sound speed and temperature profiles to 2200 m depth, and their envelopes for each station is presented for 25 stations in Bermudian waters and in the month of October, December, and March. The period October to March covers the full range of large seasonal changes in the near-surface waters from summer to winter; while the deep waters remain relatively stable and do not show any definite seasonal changes. For two long constant depth stations, in and below the main thermocline, time series and their power density spectra are shown for sound speeds and temperatures. A table of sound channel parameters at all stations concludes the report. The report emphasizes the variability and short- lived phenomena in oceanic waters around Bermuda.
