Abstract:

A series of oceanographic sections across the equator in May and June 1979 were carried out by RANRL and CSIRO at 92 deg E in the eastern Indian Ocean. Marked reversals in the surface currents were found which suggest the presence of either equatorially trapped waves or waves caused by the Ninety East Ridge. The XBT sections and dynamic height contours support the observed current reversals. Author
