South Pacific thermocline waters are transported in the westward flowing South Equatorial Current from the subtropical gyre center toward the southwestern Pacific Ocean—a major circulation pathway that redistributes water from the subtropics to the equator and to the southern ocean.

The transit in the Coral Sea is potentially of great importance to tropical climate prediction because changes. Purchase Ocean Circulation and Climate, Volume - 2nd Edition. Print Book & E-Book.
