Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is an important parameter in climate studies. Climatological SST data has been used to study seasonal, annual and decadal variations over Zhoushan, Zhejiang, China. The seasonal variations of SST Anomalies indicating that in summer season showing higher than other seasons. However, autumn season is showing lower anomalies than other seasons. Latitudinal variations compared over Zhoushan (28-32°N); lower latitude shows higher anomalies in winter season and lower anomalies at high latitude. Annual variations are indicating a decrease trend up to 1940; however, there is an increasing trend observed since 1940. 32°N shows higher anomalies than other latitudes. Since 1940, there are wide deviations can be observed in decadal variations.
