Abstract

Monthly averages of sea surface temperature for the period 1947-1960 are subjected to a harmonic analysis to determine the amplitude and phase of the annual and semiannual temperature variation. The harmonic parameters are calculated for each two-degree square of the Pacific Ocean north of 20⚬ S lat and are presented in five charts. The distribution of the harmonic parameters and their contribution in shaping the seasonal variation are discussed.
