Description 
Summary

Data from 279 hydrographic stations sampled in the channel separating La Gomera from Tenerife in the course of several expeditions on board the R/V 'Agamenon' from February 1975 to 1978. 65 stations recorded temperature and salinity from 0-600m. The remainder of the stations recorded surface data. On certain occasions drifters were used to study surface information. 10 stations were moored for 24 hours near the coast of Tenerife and three parachute follow-ups in the course of two complete tides were carried out.
