Current (NEC) is centered at 12°_13°N and the North Equatorial Countercurrent (NECC) at about 5°N similar to the U.S. Navy'sGDEM climatology (Teague et al, ) (Fig le).

Other articles where Pacific North Equatorial Current is discussed: equatorial current: The Pacific North Equatorial Current is given a westward impetus by the Northeast Trade Winds (latitude 10°–25° N). Upon reaching the Philippines, the current divides, with the lesser part turning south and then east to start the Pacific Equatorial Countercurrent, and the greater part flowing north..
s there have been in situ observations of Internal Solitary Waves (ISWs) near the North Equatorial Counter Current (NECC) off the Brazilian continental shelf, where localized surface velocity pulses of up to 2 m/s have been documented (e.g. Brandt et al., ). Despite these early efforts, the region remained largely unexplored until recently. The ocean and the world’s mean climate turbulence (Figures and ) and assists in l owering SST. Horizontal shear between the South Equatorial Current and the North Equatorial Countercurrent gives rise to wave-like instabilities in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean (Figure ). These waves are.

Lolk. Abstract Interannual and longer timescale variations of the North Equatorial Countercurrent (NECC) in the western Paciﬁc are investigated using the multidecade (–) hindcast by the Ocean general circulation model for the Earth Simulator (OFES). The OFES-simulated sea level and upper ocean circulation.
The North Equatorial Countercurrent (NECC) is an important zonal flow in the upper circulation of the tropical Pacific Ocean, which plays a vital role in the heat budget of the western Pacific Cited by: 3.

T.,File Size: 2MB. 1 Introduction. The North Equatorial Current (NEC) in the Pacific Ocean, as it encountering the Philippine coast, bifurcates into two western boundary currents (Figure 1): the northward flowing Kuroshio Current (KC) and the southward flowing Mindanao Current (MC) [Nitani, ; Toole et al., ; Hu and Cui, ; Qu and Lukas, ; Yaremchuk and Qu, ; Hu et al., ].Cited by: 5.
The CMODFD data were employed to compute the Ekman vertical velocity in the region of the Pacific North Equatorial Countercurrent (NECC), and a correlative relation was found between the annual cycles and longitudinal variations of the NECC and Ekman vertical motionAuthor: M.
Freilich, R. Dunbar and D. Halpern. Figures 1 and 2 provide elements for a first evaluation of near-equatorial currents and properties in the model, based on yr averages of the variables.

La Nin˜a years. This variation is mainly accounted for by westward propagation of upwelling (downwelling) Rossby waves generated by winds in the central equatorial Pacific and by an anomalous anticyclone (cyclone) located in the western North Pacific when a warm (cold) event matures.
The interannual variability of the NEC transport is. The annual and interannual variations of the major zonal currents of the central tropical Pacific for the period are described by analyzing two data sets: sea level data from a few selected island stations and ship-of-opportunity expendable bathythermograph (XBT) observations.
