Figure 5.A.1 The number of ocean temperature observations in each 1° grid box at 250 m depth for two periods: (a) 1955 to 1959, with a low density of observations, and (b) 1994 to 1998, with a high density of observations. A blue dot indicates a 1° grid box containing 1 observation, a green dot 2 to 5 observations, an orange dot 6 to 20 observations, and a red dot more than 20 observations.
