- Latent heat flux and windspeed along the equator
- Latent heat flux and d(SST)/dt along the equator
- Latent heat flux and windspeed at 0°, 170°W
- ud(SST)/dx (upstream or centered difference) at 0° 170°W
- SST terms at 0° 170°W.

The radiation estimate is from OLR (see the third set of figures on this page), and is probably not right. - Zonal SST gradient on the equator during 1982-97 (Reynolds)

Figs 3-6 compare the model with various observed quantities. The real aim of this exercise is to see whether zonal advection due to intraseasonal Kelvin waves accounted for the steppy eastward advance of SST. The velocities themselves (Fig 3) aren't bad. Fig 6 shows that zonal advection probably had a lot to do with the SST advance. (But Fig 5 of the first set of figures shows that looking in detail at the terms of the SST balance gives a much more ambiguous picture, and that other terms also contributed).
