Near-equatorial trough

Near-equatorial trough

Since 1954, studies concluded that the near-equatorial trough was associated with a maximum in oceanic sea surface temperature. It is sometimes used as a synonym for the terms near equatorial tradewind convergence, Intertropical convergence zone, and monsoon trough. Surges of higher pressure from high latitudes can enhance tropical disturbances along its axis. A pair of these troughs can occur during the Spring transition season.
