  • Description:
    "This note is being written to address the problems of sea surface temperature monthly climatology in the coastal and off-shore areas of the Gulf Stream which are highly variable in both time and space. Also, of interest is the ocean region centered near Bermuda, the Sargasso Sea, which exhibits little variation in winter temperatures. A comparison of large-scale sea surface temperature climatologies is not the purpose of this note, such a comparison is being prepared by Reynolds (1982). A SST climatology is needed to determine anomalous water temperatures. During the past 6 years several monthly mean SST climatologies have been used by the Ocean Services Group. These climatologies are compared in this note"--Introduction.
