Item Summary

Title: Pacific Ocean Equatorial Temperature and Wind
Authors: Montgomery, R.B.
Issue Date: Oct 1973
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
Citation: Montgomery RB. 1973. Pacific Ocean equatorial temperature and wind. Pac Sci 27(4): 406-408.
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.
