ICES Report on Ocean Climate 2006
This report describes the present (2006) status of sea temperature and salinity in the ICES region of the North Atlantic and Nordic Seas, as well as trends observed. Some additional datasets are provided, including those on sea level pressure, air temperature, and ice cover. Although the focus is on the variations in the upper ocean (the top 1000 m),
information about changes in the deeper layers of the ocean is also included in specific regions of interest.
