Abstract

A recent set of oceanographic measurements in the western equatorial Pacific has revealed the existence of previously undescribed major ocean currents and upper-ocean mixed-layer structure. The measurements also confirm a 20-year-old hypothesis on the water-mass origins of the Equatorial Undercurrent in the Pacific Ocean.
