The continuation of the Gulf Stream Dynamics Experiment was conducted at 70oW, about 450 km northeast of Cape Hatteras, to study the baroclinic transport and cross-stream thermocline structure of the Gulf Stream. This report documents the inverted echo sounder data collected during the May 1985 to June 1986 deployment period. Time series plots of the half-hourly travel time and low-pass filtered thermocline depth measurements are presented for ten instruments. Bottom pressure and temperature, measured at three sites, are also plotted. Basic statistics are given for all the data records shown. Maps of the thermocline depth field in a 120 km by 260 km box region are presented at daily intervals.
