Abstract
    A brief review is given of the factors affecting the thermal structure of the ocean as as of sources of errors in the surface temperature reports. The heat budget of the interaction between the oceans and the atmosphere has been adapted to routine numerical computations at Fleet Numerical Weather Facility, " .The dependence of the temperature structure in the ocean on atmospheric events is demonstrated. The effects of the constraints of grid mesh size, instrument and transmission errors are considered in the production of sea surface temperature analyses. The underwater temperare structure is analyzed using a simple model. Finally, the integrated effects of the calculated energy exchange at the surface are applied to the initial analysis to obtain a two day prediction.Examples of thermal structure analyses and predictions are presented and the factors affecting their interpretations are briefly pointed out. Brief notes are also given on the future plans for improvement. extension and utilization of oceanographic predictions.
