The Gulf Stream Dynamics Experiment was conducted in the region just northeast of Cape Hatteras to study the propagation and growth characteristics of Gulf Stream meanders. This report documents the inverted echo sounder data collected during the July 1982 to April 1983 deployment period. Time series plots of the half-hourly travel time and low-pass filtered thermocline depth measurements are presented for eleven instruments. Basic statistics are given for all the data records shown. Maps of the thermocline depth field in a 200 km by 400 km region are presented at daily intervals.
