Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is one of the important parameter to describe seawater characteristic. There is a strong linkage between SST and El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The purpose of this research is to investigate SST of Java Sea during in period 1997—1998 and 2014– 2015. We use datasets from Hycom archieves, INDESO, and SOI. The result shows El Nino is started in March 1997 until April 1998 (peak in March 1998), then La Nina is started in June to December 1998 (peak in July 1998). Maximum Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly (SSTA) is occurred in August – September 1998 (0.8 °C – 0.9 °C). During 2014–2015, a propagation of El Nino is founded. El Nino is started in August until November 2014 (-7.6 < SOI < -11.4, peak in August), and is followed in May to October 2015 (-12 < SOI < -20.2, peak in October). During 2014–2015, a maximum Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly (SSTA) is founded in May 2014 (0.5 °C).
