This paper describes in detail the rationale, cruise patterns, stations, gear, sampling procedures, and methods of specimen handling, and presents all the hydrographic data accumulated during the 28 months of the Hourglass program (August 1965 - November 1967). The Hourglass cruises were conducted by the Marine Research Laboratory of the Florida Board of Conservation and represent one of the few major systematic biological sampling programs undertaken on the continental shelf of the Gulf of Mexico. Volume I, Part I is the first in a new series of Laboratory publications which will deal with results obtained from the Hourglass program. This issue is designed to make the basic data available and to eliminate needless repetition in succeeding volumes.
