A seven level primitive equation equatorial ocean model with temperature and salinity is integrated over a 30 year period to a quasi-steady state. Placement of four of the seven levels of the model in the first 100 meters gives sufficient vertical resolution to resolve most major features of equatorial oceans. The model equivalents of the South Equatorial Current, the Cromwell Current, vertical upwelling in the equatorial area, Ekman divergence of mass toward each pole, and a thermocline were all simulated.
