Monthly Sea-Surface Temperature Anomaly Graphs for Atlantic Coast Stations (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Monthly Sea-Surface Temperature Anomaly Graphs for Atlantic Coast Stations To estimate the gross variability ofthe sea surface temperature along the Atlantic coast of the United States and to document an ap parent warming trend during the present cen tury, monthly and annual temperature anom alies were computed at 27 coast stations and light ships (fig. This paper presents graphs of the monthly temperature anomalies (fig. The annual anomalies, and a geographic and temporal analysis of monthly and annual anomalies are published elsewhere (stearns, in press). Methods used were those of Robinson(1961), who has presented similar data for the Pacific coast of North America (scripps Institution of Oceanography, 1960 The anomalies were computed at each station from the mean of the 10 years 1950-59, to maintain consistency with Robinson's analysis (so the two coasts could be compared), and because the majority of Atlantic coast stations with recent records have most of these years in common. Monthly sea-surface temperature anomalies at each station were computed as the differ ence between each monthly mean, and the monthly mean for the base period 1950-59. Positive anomalies indicate warmer condi tions, negative anomalies cooler conditions, than the mean of the 1950's.
