Excerpt from Oceanography of the Grand Banks Region and the Labrador Sea: April June, August, and October, 1969
Current component was found only at station 104; sea ice prevented the occupation of any stations nearer to shore.
The surface temperatures during the Octo... ber westwind occupation were cooler by 4 to 60° than the August occupation, but the temperatures over the Labrador and Greenland coastal shelves were not as cold. The cold core of the Labrador Current was smaller in October and had a minimum temperature of versus - 1.54°c in August (figs. 35 and Only a small amount of cold East Greenland Current Water was found near the surface on station 55 at the eastern end of this section (fig.
The annual occupation of this section by the Ice Patrol is valuable in monitoring the long term variability in the interchange of water between the Labrador Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. This interchange plays an important role in the transport of the Labrador Current, which carries icebergs southward from Baffin Bay to the North Atlantic shipping lanes off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The 1969 values of volume transport, mean temperature, and heat transport for the Lab rador and West Greenland Currents through this section above a -meter reference level are presented in table II with the values from all previous occupations since 1948. The means and standard deviations of these values are also presented.
