This note describes the results of an exploratory data-analytic study of sea surface temperatures and wind speeds measured on Oceanic Weather Ship PAPA. Spectral analysis indicates that sea surface temperatures and wind speeds have seasonal effects. Detrended sea surface temperatures and wind speeds exhibit the following association. Positive changes between days t and t-1 in the inverse residual sea surface temperature are associated with large residual wind speeds on day t and large residual sea surface temperatures on day t-1. This association can be explained by the behavior of the oceanic mixed layer depth
