I have erased this sentence that I find to be false. The reason for the Chile-Peru upwelling to occur is not due to El-Nino.
Where are they?? Besides helping with Verifiability,this is an article about a phenomenom which the vast majority of people ( aside from those who study oceanography ) don't know about.. some references would be handy for them as well as for students doing projects etc. Kotare 09:17, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
The line describing Ekman pumping and suction is incorrect - it is the other way round - Ekman pumping is a result of Ekman divergence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 12:31, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
Why are there no numbers at all, not even very approximate, e.g. for depth and velocity of Ekman transport away from the equator in the mid-Pacific, mid-Atlantic, and mid-Indian? Is the depth 1 m, 10 m, 100 m, 1 km? And is the velocity 1 m per second, per day, per year? Vaughan Pratt (talk) 16:43, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
Error in formula (3)?
I think there is an error in formula (3), since integrating over 2nd equation with respect to z should result in zero, this only happens when we integrate over z from 0 to -inf. So there is an inconsistency in the page, since we assume z to be positive in the downward direction, but use z negative in the downward direction in formula (3). — Preceding unsigned comment added by JesperPeterse (talk • contribs) 07:54, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
