Indian Ocean anomalies next, for those citizen scientists. Starting to cool now after 14 years of no change. Back to 1988 levels …

(12) Indian Ocean Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies

(60S to 30N, 20E to 120E)

Monthly Change = -0.036 deg C

Much colder in the Southern Ocean!

(14) Southern Ocean Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies

(90S-60S)

Monthly Change = -0.056 deg C
