Note(s): Meteorological records and water temperatures are used to describe annual variations in the heat budget of the Indian River lagoon, on the Atlantic coast of Florida. In the summer of 1979, water temperatures varied 1-2°C about the seasonal norm over time scales of about 1 wk. Heat stored in the lagoon was highly correlated with net insolation, net outgoing longwave radiation and sensible heat fluxes. In the winter of 1979-80, warming and cooling cycles varied temperatures ± 3-4°C about the norm, and the storage term was significantly correlated with only the sensible and latent heat fluxes.
