Abstract:

Maps presented in three recently published Atlases, showing the sea surface temperature of the Eastern Indian Ocean, are compared. The Atlases are the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office Atlas 1967 the World Ocean Atlas, Vol. I 1976 and the World Ocean Atlas, Vol. II 1977. The SST given by each atlas differed from that given by the other two atlases by up to 2 C. The SST maps in the World Ocean Atlas, Vol. II 1977 appear to be based on the most comprehensive and recent data, hence are probably the most reliable. Author
