The four components of the net surface heating of the tropical pacific Ocean between 40 deg s and 30 deg n have been calculated for each month between January 1957 and December 1976. The 20-year monthly mean of each component were also calculated. These flux estimates were derived by using bulk formulae and about five million marine weather reports. The components are averaged over 5 deg latitude by 5 deg longitude grids. Grids which did not have data in a given month were assigned interpolated values. Author
