The North Atlantic region is unusual in having a relatively large number of locations at which oceanographic data have repeatedly been collected for many years or decades; the longest records go back more than a century. In this report, we provide the very latest information from the ICES Area of the North Atlantic and Nordic Seas, where the ocean is currently measured regularly. We describe the status of sea temperature and salinity during 2007, as well as the observed trends over the last decade or longer. In the first part of the report, we draw together the information from the longest time-series in order to give the best possible overview of changes in the ICES Area. Throughout the report, additional complementary datasets are provided, such as sea level pressure (SLP), air temperature, and ice cover.
