Since June 1981 several Ctd and velocity profiler sections have been made across the equator at 85°W as part of the Equatorial Pacific Ocean Climate Studies (EPOCS). Two of these sections, those in June 1981 and December 1982, are discussed in order to characterize the circulation patterns that occur when the ocean is forced by meridional wind stress. In this area the winds are predominantly southerly.
