    TROPICAL PACIFIC OCEANOGRAPHY. The present-day location of Site (5°50´N, 86°26´W) is within the eastward-flowing North Equatorial Countercurrent (NECC).A tectonic backtrack of the Cocos plate, on which Site is positioned, locates Site at a more southwesterly position around 3°N, °W between 4 and 5 Ma (Mix, Tiedemann, Blum, et . Pacific Ocean - Pacific Ocean - Study and exploration: The Pacific Islands are thought to have been peopled by influxes from both mainland and archipelagic Southeast Asia. The earliest migrations were to what is now generally referred to as Melanesia. From there generations of voyagers ranged northward into eastern Micronesia and eastward into Polynesia.

    The most important coastal upwelling zone in the eastern tropical Pacific is found off Peru (Kessler, ; Pennington et al., ), caused in text-book fashion by the predominantly alongshore, equatorward trade winds. The low SST signature of the coastal upwelling process merges with that of the equatorial cold tongue. The Tropical Eastern Pacific is one of the twelve marine realms that cover the shallow oceans of the world. The Tropical Eastern Pacific extends along the Pacific Coast of the Americas, from the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in the north to northern Peru in the south. It also includes a number of islands and island groups, including the Galápagos, Revillagigedo, .
