Sea Surface Temperature and Anomaly trends by region

The chart above displays the climatology (climate normal) and anomaly SST data for the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem and four sub-regions (Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank, Scotian Shelf, Mid-Atlantic Bight). For each sub-region, the climatology data was calculated for the 30 year period from 1981-2012. The grey shaded area represents the range of SST min and max for each year. The black line is the mean for all 30 years. The ongoing average daily SST temperature is the yellow line which is dynamically updated. Choose a region from the drop down list to update the chart.
