A wide range of comparisons of the winds, divergence, and pseudo-wind stress curl will be presented. Long-term monthly wind averages from 11ºN-11ºS, 122°E-290ºE reveal large differences in the three products. The FSU2 winds are stronger (5.6 ms-1) than either the NCEPR1 (4.1 ms-1) or the NCEPR2 (4.6 ms-1). These results show that NCEPR2 improvements in forecast model and data assimilation system have produced better estimations of the surface winds in this region. The ITCZ and the SPCZ are found to be sharper in the mean wind divergence fields in the FSU2 and NCEPR2 as compared to the NCEPR1. In addition, interannual and seasonal signals are stronger in the FSU2 product than in the reanalyses, in particular the ENSO anomalies.
