HERNANDEZ, Benigno. Sea surface temperature anomalies interannual variability in Cuban waters and their relationship with El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. Investig. mar. [online]. 2002, vol.30, n.2, pp.21-31. ISSN 0717-7178.

Sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies time series in the Cuban waters grid is analyzed. Cold and warm events in times series are shown. SST anomalies are compared with ENSO 3 region in the equatorial Pacific with SST anomalies Cuban waters having a high correlation with 4-5 months of lag. We are also analyzed the relationships between the SST anomalies and air surface temperature in some of the Cubans coastal meteorological data are analyzed, as well as the influence of the SST anomalies, with the spawns and recruitment of the spiny lobster Panulirus argus of the Cuban region, all with a good level of statistical significance with lags.

Keywords : sea surface temperature (SST); ENSO; lobster; Cuba.
