Abstract : Flow diagrams and formulas for synoptic heat exchange computations are given, and examples of such computations are presented. Average values and typical ranges of different heat exchange components are given and their pattern size in relation to the size of surface weather pattern is indicated. The use of heat exchange computations in oceanographic analyses and forecasts is described, and the magnitudes of thermal structure changes in surface layers due to heat exchange considerations are given.
