The time and space distribution of 74,256 ocean stations (temperature, salinity, and oxygen) collected in the Barents Sea during 1898-1993 is presented. These data are recorded in a form at designed for use in electronic spreadsheets and/or databases. Monthly maps defining the station distribution over the Barents Sea are given for every year. Monthly mean fields of temperature and salinity distribution for the depths 0, 30, 50, 100, and 200 met ers, with a grid distance of 10'x30' are plotted using objective analysis techniques. A description of the summer and winter seasons is given in terms of the spatial-temporal variability of thermohaline characteristics of the Barents Sea.
