(1) Theoretical temperature at the precise air-sea interface.
(2) Temperature of the water across a very small depth (approximately the upper 20 micrometers).
(3) Temperature at the base of the thermal skin layer.
(4) Temperature at the water column free of diurnal temperature variability or equal to the sub-skin sea-surface temperature in the absence of any diurnal signal.
