dc.description.abstractSea surface temperature (SST) anomalies from previous sources have been relation to subsurface temperature anomalies from BT's at six positions in the Northeast Pacific. In this manner some understanding of the value of SST anomalies as indicators of ocean energy states is achieved. Results show that for about 10% of the time, the SST anomaly generally extended to depths of 100 meters or more. November through April were found to be the months most favorable for the occurrence of these deeply penetrating anomalies. Summertime SST anomalies were determined to be shallow features of less than 40 meters and were not indicative of subsurface heat content. A close linear relationship was observed year round between SST anomalies and heat content anomalies in the top 30 meters of the ocean. There was little correlation between SST and heat content in the 91-122 meters layer.en_US
