Most of the available temperature and salinity data from the waters above the Labrador continental shelf and slope are assembled and analyzed for seasonal variations. It is first demonstrated that the horizontal temperature and salinity gradients are small in the waters over the shelf relative to the gradients across the slope where the strongest part of the Labrador Current is trapped....
