The phenomena of marine climate can be identified by the sea surface temperature, as Illahude (1999) reported that one of the parameters of oceanography which characterized of sea water mass is sea surface temperature (SST). The distribution of sea surface temperature can be used as an indicator of fishing ground. However, as understanding of marine climate variability it does not well enough (Hartoko, 2000). The characteristic and variability of SST in Java Sea are not sufficiently enough understood. In order to better understand, we need the Spatial-Temporal Analysis of SST. The Spectral Analysis Method is used to study the characteristic and seasonal variation of SST, while GIS Analysis is used to study SST spatial distribution pattern. Temporally, the highest temperature at Java Sea occurs in April - May and November, whereas the lowest temperature in February and August. The SST fluctuation of Java Sea ranges from 27.48° C to 29.66" C and its periodic cycle generally occurs for 6 months, 1 year and 8 years.
