Description 
Summary

Sleat Sound is a Scottish fjord. Four CTD stations in Sleat Sound were surveyed frequently in 1990 to 1992. The aim of the experiment was to describe the aperiodic changes in the water masses of the sound. Tables of temperature, salinity and density are available at depth intervals of one metre at each station.
