Maps of seawater surface temperatures of Greece

All temperatures are in degrees Celsius (°C) and are averages over a period of 1850 till 2006. These temperatures are seawater surface temperatures: and therefore below the surface it can be colder.
In the maps below, the Ionian, Aegean and Turkish coastal areas have been divided into squares. For each of the four quadrants per square an average temperature is given. Even when a temperature is printed on land it of course concerns only the wet area of that quadrant.
It is important to realise that this unique climate data is collected from ships well offshore, so invariably the inshore temperatures experienced at beaches will be higher, in shallow secluded bays/beaches even up to 2 degrees higher!
