Iceland is located in Europe. The country is washed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Norwegian Sea. Iceland - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we monitor 17 settlements and resorts.

Subarctic marine, greatly mitigated by the influence of the warm Gulf Stream. Due to the warming of the air by its waters brought from equatorial latitudes, the climate is much milder than what might be expected at this latitude, but it is very windy. A strong wind blows almost constantly. The average national temperature in August is around + 10˚C, in January -1˚C, in Reykjavik the average January temperatures are around 0˚C, in July - + 11˚C. In mountainous regions, the climate is much colder at any time of the year, especially on the eastern and northeastern slopes. Precipitation falls from 500 to 4000 mm per year.

Iceland: regions

We show the surface temperature of the water in the following regions of the country:

Iceland: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
