Abstract: A program designed to measure temperature and conductivity in the upper 270 m of the Arctic Ocean within a 150-km radius of Drift Station FRAM I is described, and data in the form of profiles of temperature, salinity, and density as functions of depth are presented for each of 104 casts made with a portable, self-contained conductivity-temperature-depth instrument. Seventy-five of the casts were made away from the ice station at sites reached by helicopter. Details of sampling procedure, instrument calibration, and data organization are given.
