This was the tenth cruise in our current series . Good weather prevailed for the first twelve days of the cruise , but persistent 30-40 knot southerly winds blew during the last four days. These persistent winds forced abandonment of thirteen stations in the southern section . In spite of this , 94% of the proposed stations were sampled.
