During 2003 and 2004, CTD data were collected in the equatorial Pacific Ocean during cruises to service the TAO/TRITON array, a network of deep ocean moored buoys deployed to support ENSO research and forecasting. Summaries of Sea-Bird CTD measurements and hydrographic data acquired on 16 cruises are presented. Composite potential temperature-salinity diagrams and section plots of oceanographic variables along 95°W, 110°W, 125°W, 140°W, 155°W, 170°W, 180°, and 165°E meridians are given. Profiles including station location, meteorological conditions, and abbreviated CTD data listings are shown on the report CD for each cast. Hydrographic data are listed for each cruise on the report CD.
