An analysis is made of the performance characteristics of a salinity/temperature/depth (STD) system manufactured by Bissett-Berman Corporation and used widely for oceanographic measurements. Particular attention is given to the influence of ambient vertical temperature gradient and rate of instrument descent on the registrations of salinity. An equation is derived for adjustment of indicated salinity values.
