Downwelling oceanic Kelvin waves were subsequently generated and propagated rapidly eastward across the equatorial Pacific Ocean and induced significant warming in the eastern basin. By analyzing newly available wind products derived from SSM/I satellite observations, we found indications that these westerly wind bursts were embedded within the active phase of the… CONTINUE READING
