Ocean Temperature

Weekly, monthly and season measures and analyses of ocean temperature.

Monthly
This map shows the month of the year in which the maximum monthly mean sea surface temperature (SST) occurs in the 1971-2000 climatology.
This map shows the month of the year in which the minimum monthly mean sea surface temperature (SST) occurs in the 1971-2000 climatology.
This map shows the magnitude of the annual range of the monthly mean sea surface temperature (SST) in the 1971-2000 climatology in units of °C.
This map displays monthly sea surface temperature anomalies for the globe.
This map displays the difference in sea surface temperature anomaly from the previous month.
This map shows an animation of monthly sea surface temperature anomalies (in °C) over the past 24 months.
This map displays monthly sea surface temperature anomalies for the globe.
This map displays monthly sea surface temperatures for the globe.
This map shows the number of months out of the three months indicated in which the standardized sea surface temperature anomaly exceeded +1 standard deviation or fell below -1 standard deviation of the 1971-2000 mean.
This map shows the number of months out of the six months indicated in which the standardized sea surface temperature anomaly exceeded +1 standard deviation or fell below -1 standard deviation of the 1971-2000 mean.
This map displays monthly standardized sea surface temperature anomalies for the month indicated.
This map displays the change in the sea surface temperature anomaly from the previous month divided by the standard deviation of the month-to-month change for the given month over the 1950-present base period.
Weekly
