in response to low local wind conditions, while the low wind speeds persist, such SST anomalies cannot sustain enhanced deep convection. In the coupled system, surface winds also determine the depth of the thermocline and the evolution of the cold equatorial tongue, with low wind speed anomalies along the equator leading to warm anomalies in the Gulf of Guinea (e.g., Verstraete 1992 ). Wind stress in the southern Atlantic is also important, and Marin et al. (2009) recently contrasted the cold
