Sea-surface temperatures

New Zealand seas tend to be colder in the south and warmer in the north. As spring arrives, the water gradually warms and reaches peak temperatures in late summer. This map shows average sea-surface temperatures in winter (August) and summer (February) from data collected between 1993 and 2002.
