Mean, maximum and minimum coastal sea surface temperature (1953–2014)
New Zealand's Environment Reporting Series: The Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand
Coastal sea-surface temperature is influenced by solar heating and cooling, latitude, and local geography. It is hard for some marine species to survive when the sea temperature changes. This can affect marine ecosystems and processes. It can also affect fish-farming industries based in our coastal areas. This dataset relates to the "Coastal sea-surface temperature" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website.
