From Carol Anne Clayson's research a map showing, over a ten-year average, the difference between air-to-sea heat exchange values calculated with and without consideration of diurnal sea surface temperature  (SST) cycles. The units of the heat exchange are Watts per square meter, "warmer" colors indicate greater difference (greater error) in results when not taking the diurnal SSTs into account; the black contour line marks the 5 Watts per square meter level.
