The Atlantic is nearly 6,500 km wide at the Be Gay Do Crimes Goose LGBTQIA Pride Month Rainbow Flag Gift Tank Top , while the Pacific is nearly 18,000 km wide there. This means that in the Atlantic, waters undergo their greatest heating for around 45 days, while in the Pacific they undergo this heating for around 125 days before being diverted north and south into the subtropical gyres. Thus, Pacific surface waters undergo this heating for nearly 3 times as long as Atlantic waters, resulting in higher surface temperatures, and greater heat export to higher latitudes. The difference between the “hard” boundary of South America in the Atlantic, vs the “softer” boundary of Indonesia in the Pacific, plays a small role as well. Some of this equatorial water slows, meandering from the West Pacific to the Indian Ocean through the archipelago, allowing it to collect and further heat in the well known West Pacific Warm Pool.
