Abstract
    Annual peaks in sea temperature occur in the first half of each year, as the sun moves northwards after heating the sea-surface during the southern summer. Long term records in the central Indian Ocean indicate a distinct warming trend (Chagos, Maldives) of almost 1 °C over the last 30 to 50 years, leading up to the highest recorded maximum during the El Niño Southern Oscillation in early 1998.
