  Two ocean gateways, crucial to global oceanic circulation, closed or narrowed parallel to the changes observed in the East Pacific water column. A critical threshold in the closure of the CAS was reached between and Ma in the East Pacific (Haug et al., ).Author: T. A. Ronge, D. Nürnberg, R. Tiedemann. steep temperature gradient in the ocean that separates deeper cold water from warmer upper water. What is the Walker Circulation Cell? It is the path that air takes as it moves from high to low pressure, and back to high pressure, in the South Pacific under normal conditions. The South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ), a reverse-oriented monsoon trough, is a band of low-level convergence, cloudiness and precipitation extending from the Western Pacific Warm Pool at the maritime continent south-eastwards towards French Polynesia and as far as the Cook Islands (W, 20S). The SPCZ is a portion of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) .   Inter tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and Equatorial Currents Near the equator, from about 5° north and 5° south, the northeast trade winds and southeast trade winds converge in a low pressure zone known as the Inter tropical Convergence Zone or ITCZ.

In the Pacific, Hadley circulation consist of two cells, one in the western and another in the central-eastern Pacific, with warm and moist air rising in the intertropical . Generally, at high altitudes over the ocean, the Meteorological Equator remains vertically structured in the vicinity of the Geographical Equator. But, overland, the Meteorological Equator forms an oblique, northward dipping plane in the lower troposphere, the so-called Intertropical Front . The centers of both the Water Hemisphere and the Western Hemisphere are in the Pacific Ocean. The equator subdivides it into the North (ern) Pacific Ocean and South (ern) Pacific Ocean, with two exceptions: the Galápagos and Gilbert Islands, while straddling the equator, are deemed wholly within the South e depth: 4, m (14, ft).   An intensive study was made of convection in a 4° × 4° square centered on 10°N, 95°W in September and October of This is called the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) study region because it encompasses the eastern Pacific intertropical Cited by:
