FIGURE 35. DRIFT OF USCGC NORTHWIND IN BERING SEA ICE FLOE- 22 MARCH TO 5 APRIL 1955



E, Submarine Geology

Dtiring the winter and spring cruises, the NORTHliTIND collected 33
bottom samples and the BURTON ISLAND collected 22 (Fig. 36) with the
Dietz-LaFond bottom sampler. The samples were stored In Mason jars to
prevent excessive loss of moisture snd shipped to the Hydrographic
Office laboratory for analysis. Results of the analysis are presented
in Tables 5 and 6. Classification of the sediments was based upon the
modified Trefethen bottom sediment classification triangle (Fig. 37).

A microscopic examination of the sand-size fraction of the samples
showed the dominant mineral to be quartz grains of medium low sphericity
and subangular roundness, with either a polished, smooth, or dull-frosted
surface. BURTON ISLAND samples h, 5, and 7 consisted almost entirely of
diatom tests, while sample 6 and NORTHWIND sample 30 contained large per-
centages of diatom tests. Sorting coefficients, where determined, indi-
cated that all samoles were well sorted.

F, Transparency

Transparency measurements vere made at oceanographic stations during
daylight hours with a white Secchi disc 30 centimeters in diameter.
Figure 38 presents the results of 15 measurements obtained by the
NORTHWIND and 17 measurements by the BURTON ISLAND. Maximum values were
obseirved in the open waters south and southwest of the ice boundary.
Low values, obtained within the ice pack, possibly are due to the in-
creased amount of impurities deposited in the waters during icemelt,

G, Oxygen

Approximately 238 analyses for dissolved oxygen content were made
using the modified Winkler method. The samples were obtained at U8
oceanographic stations occupied by the NORTHWIND, Stations 22 and 2li
were omitted, and only a surface sample was analyzed for station 51.
Analyses for stations 1 throu^ 29 did not show any definite vertical
distribution. Values for stations 1 through 21 were low, ranging from
1.5 to 3,9 ml/1. The oxygen content was higher at station 23 and
stations 25 through 28 where values ranged from 3.8 to 7.7 ml/l. At
stations 30 through SO oxygen values followed a more definite pattern,
the greatest oxygen content being observed in the upper 100 meters.
Oxygen content within this layer ranged from 6,6 to 10.1 ml/l, and de-
creased fairly regularly below this layer. The tabulation of these data
are presented in the Appendix.

EXPLANATION OF DATA PAGES

GENERAL

Each of the items appearing on the data pages is explained below.
The vertical arrows shown in some of the column headings indicate the
location of decimal points. The presence of an asterisk to the left of
the data indicates that data as doubtful, hence it was not used in the
construction of the curve from which the interpolated values (standard
depth values) were derived. Observed values which were obviously false
were omitted entirely.

SURFACE OBSERVATIONS

1. Cruise Number . This number is arbitrarily assigned. It
identifies the cruise and provides a means of sorting from the IBM
files all cards pertaining to that particular cruise. Cruise number
00505 to the USS BURTON ISLAND (AGB-1).

2. Station Nmnber . Stations are numbered consecutively, starting
with one, at the beginning of each cruise. Therefore, for a complete
identification of a particiilar station, both cruise and station number
are necessary.

3. Date . Month and day aire given in Arabic numerals. The last
three figures of the year are indicated. The havoc is Greenwich Mean
Time and is that hovir nearest to the start of the first cast.

k. Latitude and Longitude. The position of the sta.tion is given
in degrees and minutes,

5. Sonic Depth . Sonic Depth is the uncorrected sounding for the
station, recorded in meters.

6. Maximum Sample Depth . he maximum depth from which a water
sample was obtained at the station is given to the nearest 100 meters.

7. Wind. Wind speed is given in meters per second. Direction
from which the wind blows is coded in degrees ture to the nearest ten
degrees. The last zero is omitted. North is 36 on this scale and calm
is 0. See Tables Defining Code Symbols - I, Compass Direction Conversion
Table for Wind, Sea, and Swell Directions.

8. Anemometer Height. The height of the anemometer above the
waterline is given in meters.

9« Barometric Pressure . Barometric pressure is coded in milli-
bars, neglecting the 900 or 1000. Thus, 996 millibars is coded as 96
and 1008 millibars is coded as 08.



^^9



10. Air Temperature . Dry bulb and wet bulb temperatures are entered
to the nearest tenth of a degree (centigrade). A negative temperature is
coded by dropping the minus sign and adding 50; thus -10 is coded as 60.

11. Humidity . The percent of hiimidity is coded directly, 100 per-
cent being coded as 99 ►

12. Weather . Weather is coded as indicated under Tables Defining
Code Symbols - II, Numerical Weather Codes - Present Weather »

13. Cloud > Cloud type and amount are coded as indicated under
Tables Defining Code Symbols - III and IV, respectively.

14. Sea . Sea direction and amount are coded as indicated under
Tables Defining Code Symbols - I and V, respectively.

15. Swell . Swell direction and amount are coded as indicated under
Tables Defining Code Symbols - I and VI, respectively.

16. Visibility . Visibility is coded as indicated under Tables
Defining Code Sjnnbols - VII, Visibility.

17. Water Color . Water color is coded as indicated under Tables
Defining Code Symbols - VIII, Water Color.

18. Water Transparency . Water transparency is coded in whole meters
from observations taken with a white Secchi disc (30 cm. diam.eter).

SUBSURFACE OBSERVATIONS

1. Sample Depth o Observed (actual) depth of each sample is given
in meters. Interpolated values at standard depths are also given. The
standard depths, in meters, are: 0, 10, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, I50, 200,
250, 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, and
thence every 1000 meters.

2. Temperature . The centigrade teiiiperature is given in degrees
and hundredths.

3. Salinity . Salinity is given in parts per thousand (by weight)
to two decimal places.

4. Sigma-t > To convert to density divide by 1000 and add 1. Thus,
a sigma-t value of 22.35 converts to a density of 1.02235=

5. Delta-D . The values in the columns are the anomalies of dynamic
depths from the surface to each level in dynamic meters. Each entry is
the ciimulative sum of the anomalies of dynamic depth of the layer above.
These values have been computed for the standard depths only, and serve

to identify computed points.



50



6, Dissolved Oxygen . These values are given in milliliters per
liter to two decimal places. Values of 10,00 or above rarely occur
and are coded as 9»99<,

7. Sound Velocity . Sound velocity is given in feet per second
to one decimal place, corrected for pressure at each depth.
