Monthly and Annual Anomaly Animations
 

Anomaly is the difference between monthly average and monthly climatology (1982-2004). Monthly average is derived by averaging the pentad average of each month. The tropical cyclone heat potential is defined as the total heat content above the 26C isotherm. The mixed layer depth is defined as the depth where the temperature deviation from the surface temperature is less than 0.8C.
