THE VITIAZ IN THE OKHOTSK SEA

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Russian data on the strategic water areas of Asia merits study by modern methods of oceanography. One such source of data is Admiral Makaroff’s report on the cruise of the steam sloop-of-war Vitiaz as published by the Imperial Academy of Science, St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1894. The credibility of Admiral Makaroff’s report is well substantiated. In eight comparable observations (Ref. 1, p. 254) in one area, the average water density via the Challenger is 1.02636, via the Vitiaz 1.02641, via the Camegie 1.02669. At another place, Station 35, the average water density via the Vitiaz is 1.02520, via the Carnegie 1.02522, via the H.M. Smith (in February 1952) 1.02522.
