Abstract: The Scanfish is a towed undulating vehicle carrying a SeaBird 911 plus CTD
system augmented with optional sensor systems. This Scanfish package was
towed, on two cruises, across frontal systems existing on the Southern flank of
Georges Bank. Sections were repeated over a period of days. Each cruise
mapped a slightly different site. The data have been processed following the
procedures outlined by O'Malley, et al (1998) and subsequently averaged to 1 Hz
