FIGURE T17. Equatorial depth-longitude
section of ocean temperature (top) and ocean temperature anomalies
(bottom). Contour interval is 1įC. Dashed contours in bottom panel
indicate negative anomalies. Data are derived from the NCEPís global
ocean data assimilation system which assimilates oceanic observations
into an oceanic GCM (Behringer and Xue, Proceedings of Eighth
Symposium on Integrated Observing and Assimilation Systems for Atmospher,
Oceans, and Land Surface, Seattle, Washington, 11-15 January 2004).
Anomalies are departures from the 1981-2010 base period means.
