Salinity and temperature measurements were made at 145 oceanographic stations in northern Baffin Bay and the waters to the north as far as the southern fringes of the Lincoln Sea. Intermediate water from the West Spitzbergen Current is shown to turn westward and enter Lancaster Sound, being walled off from entering Smith Sound to any great degree by bathymetry. Intermediate water from the Arctic Ocean flows southward, the deeper and warmer parts truncated by a sill in Kennedy Channel.
