FIGURE T17.  Equatorial depth-longitude section of ocean temperature (top) and ocean temperature anomalies (bottom). Contour interval is 1C. Dashed contours in bottom panel indicate negative anomalies. Data are derived from the NCEP's global ocean data assimilation system which assimilates oceanic observations into an oceanic GCM (Behringer, D. W., and Y. Xue, 2004: Evaluation of the global ocean data assimilation system at NCEP: The Pacific Ocean. AMS 84th Annual Meeting, Seattle, Washington, 11-15). Anomalies are departures from the 1982-2004 base period means.
