- Equatorial Counter Current
The Equatorial Counter Current is a significant ocean current in the Pacific and Indian oceans that flows west-to-east at approximately five degrees north. The Counter Currents result from balancing the westward flow of water in each ocean by the North and South Equatorial currents. In El Niño years, this current intensifies in the Pacific Ocean.
