Upwelling acts to cool the surface and supply nutrients to surface ecosystems. Surface zonal current: The mean easterly trade winds drive a surface easterly current that pushes warm surface waters into the west Pacific. When the trades weaken during El Niño, the warm west Pacific water sloshes eastward, weakening the zonal SST contrast across the Pacific and thus further weakening the trades—a positive feedback for the ENSO cycle. Walker circulation: The zonally oriented component of the tropical Pacific atmospheric circulation.

Because of the presence of continental barriers, those currents form loops called the subtropical gyres. The surface currents in those gyres are intensified along the western boundaries of the oceans (the east coasts of continents) inducing well-known strong currents such as the Gulf Stream off the east coast of the United States and the Kuroshio off Japan.
