Abstract. Clear-sky long-wave irradiances calculated
by a wide-band radiation code applied to the ECMWF
re-analysis are used to investigate the spatial and tem-
poral variations in net surface long-wave radiative fluxes
over the ocean. Monthly mean clear-sky net long-wave
irradiances from the atmosphere to the ocean surface,
Fnet (Win-2), are presented for the period 1979to 1993.
F,~et is of order -90 Wm -2 between sea surface tem-
peratures (Ta) of 270 and 295 K. For Ts greater than
