Abstract

Using the Navier–Stokes equations in rotating spherical coordinates, we discuss a mathematical model for the equatorial current across the Pacific Ocean. Symmetry properties of the governing equations that hold in equatorial regions permit us to gain detailed insight into the structure of the ocean flow dynamics.
