ABSTRACT: Sunda Strait Waters to be influenced the mixing the Java sea waters and Indian Ocean. Parameters such as temperature, salinity, and depth were measured vertically by CTD at the beginning of March 2012 to measure the density of Sunda Strait Waters that represent to transition monsoon. Data were processed by ODV’s software. Water masses of Sunda Strait Waters being closed to Java Sea has high temperature, low salinity and density, but those being closed to Indian Ocean has low temperature, salinity, and density which increased by depths. The differences of density vertical distribution were the upper layer were influenced by Java Sea water masses with a relatively low value, while the deeper layer is influenced by Indian Ocean with a high value.
