Explanation: Cioè non la temperatura superficiale dell'acqua
The temperature of the top millimeter of a water surface is generally a few tenths of a degree C cooler than the ‘bulk’ temperature, i.e., the temperature ~1 meter deep, which is routinely measured by buoys and ships. This is because of a daytime temperature gradient between the bulk location and the surface, and because of the thin skin at the surface. This difference is important for climate and weather forecasting because of the atmospheric forcing by the oceans.
