On the surface temperature of Greek waters

  • Leon N. Carapiperis


This study deals with the surface temperature of Greek seas. The general distribution of this element for the months February, May, August and November is given and the factors controlling the sea-surface temperature are examined. In addition the annual variation and the monthly variability of the sea surface temperature are studied, as well as the difference between the sea-surface and air temperature in three different regions of Greek waters.

Cette étude concerne la température de la surface des mers de la Grèce. La distribution générale de cet élément pour les mois de Février, Mai, Août et November est donnée et les facteurs qui contrôlent la température de la mer sont examinés. De plus la variabilité mensuelle de la température de la surface de la mer ainsi que la différence qui existe entre la température de la surface de la mer et la température de l'air dans trois différentes régions des mers Grecques.
