Abstract
Temperature and currents observed by mooring a thermistor chain and an ADCP at a platform (4º26.863’S, 81º 20.148’W) to monitor movements of the Equatorial Front along the northern Peruvian coast from December 6, 2014 to May 27, 2016. The temperature varied with a range of 17-25 ºC near the surface, 16-22 ºC near the bottom depth of 53 m. High anomalies of temperature indicated the effect of propagation of Kevin Waves along Peruvian coast during El Niñ o. Depth mean currents prevailed to the south-southwestward flow. There were two events that bottom temperature increased abruptly in April and September. These events coincided with strong south-southwestward flow. Cross-correlation between bottom temperature and depth mean currents shows the currents lead the temperature about 20 days.he temperature varied with a range of 17-25 ºC near the surface, 16-22 ºC near the bottom depth of 53 m.
