Equatorial Undercurrent

THE EQUATORIAL UNDERCURRENT (EU) is a strong subsurface equatorial eastward jet, which is situated under the surface of the westward south equatorial current in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. The main EU core (in which velocity exceeds 20 in. [50 cm.] per second) occurs within an equatorial ther-mocline. EU wideness is about 428 mi. (400 km.) (plus or minus 2 degrees to the north and south from the Equator). Thickness of EU varies from 656-1,312 ft. (200-400 m.). Typical maximum velocity within the EU core is about 3.3-5 ft. (1-1.5 m.) per second.
