Present methods for evaluating the in situ concentrations of gases in surface seawater require accurate temperature measurements. Temperature data from each of 5 PMEL cruises over the years 1986 to 1989 are discussed independently to describe the different types of data available and the methods of analysis. The seawater warming between the inlet and the equilibrator is shown for each cruise as calculated by a "point-by-point" method and a "regression" method, and both methods are discussed. The data are given in an accompanying diskette in ASCII format.
