Pagination or Media Count:
A selection of synoptic charts of heat exchange between the sea and atmosphere are presented. These cover part or the entire North Pacific and a few cover the whole Nothern Hemisphere. The North Pacific charts were computed manually and the hemisphere ones on the computer at Fleet Numerical Weather Facility. The first set of twelve charts present a study of the influence of the differences in the analyses of the distribution of basic meteorological elements on the computed heat exchange. Despite relatively large variations of the basic analyses the heat exchange patterns were remarkably similar. Following sets of charts present examples of seasonal differences of different heat exchange components and the last sets of charts present daily heat exchange together with surface pressure charts.
