Thermal Anomaly

The difference of observed temperature of a place and the mean temperature of the latitude passing through that place is called Thermal Anomaly.

thermal anomalyi.e. if the average temperature of 300 N latitude is 200c and the temperature of ‘A’ place located on that latitude is 300c then the Thermal Anomaly is of 100c.

Positive Thermal Anomaly
If the observed temperature of a particular place is more than the mean temperature of the latitude of that place, the thermal anomaly is called positive thermal anomaly.

Negative Thermal Anomaly
If the observed temperature of a given place is less than that of the latitude of that place then it becomes negative thermal anomaly.
