Summaries of CTD/O measurements and hydrographic data acquired on a Climate and Global Change cruise during the winter of 1998 aboard the NOAA ship Ronald H. Brown are presented. The majority of these data were collected along 24.5°N from 23.5°W to 69°W. Completing the transatlantic section are data collected along a NE-SW dogleg off the coast of Africa, and along a second, short, zonal section along 26.5°N off the coast of Abaco Island from 69°W to 77°W, jogging north along 27°N in the Straits of Florida to 80°W. Data acquisition and processing systems are described and calibration procedures are documented. Station location, meteorological conditions, CTD/O summary data listings, profiles, and potential temperature-salinity diagrams are included for each cast. Section plots of oceanographic variables and hydrographic data listings are also given.
