Intermediate water downstream of the Strait of Sicily
In July 1970 the ATLANTIS II sailed through the western Mediterranean providing an opportunity to make a quasi-synoptic observation of the Levantine Intermediate Water between the Strait of Gibraltar and the Strait of Sicily. The results of the study have already been presented at the 8th Annual Symposium on Military Oceanography held in Monterey, California [Ref. 2J and an analysis of the observations is now in press [Ref. 3J. Discussed below is a partial summary of these re~ults, with the emphasis on the eastern end of the section, one of the special of this workshop.
