Abstract:

Maps are presented in this report showing, 1 the mean difference between the vapour pressure at the sea surface and at a height at 10 m, and 2 the mean difference between the potential temperature at the ocean surface and at a height of 10 m, over the ocean surface from 5 deg S to 50 deg S and from 100 deg E to 140 deg E, for the months of February, May, August and November. The maps are derived from maps of relevant variables shown in the World Ocean Atlas 1976. The sizes of errors in the maps presented here are discussed. The largest errors arise from errors in the W.O.A. maps. Author
