|Abstract:||Equatorial ocean temperatures at long. 1650 W during 1957-1971
are presented. Their correlation with Canton Island surface wind is found
to be -0.57, which is not so close as might be expected from a recent paper by
Hires and Montgomery. When the annual cycles are removed, the correlation becomes
- 0.69. The annual cycle of Canton Island wind shows a primary maximum
in August and a secondary maximum in February-March, somewhat inverse to
the previously found cycle of equatorial temperature.
