Abstract

Climatic variations influential in modifying the Southern California sea are considered in relation to the strong warming trend observed from 1956 to 1959 both for surface-water temperatures and for air temperatures at coastal stations. Although the rise in air temperatures might commonly be attributed to warmer water, it is concluded in this case that the higher temperatures in both media resulted from the same changes in general circulation pattern.
