TITLE: Anomalous Westerlies, El Nino, and the Colonization of Polynesia Ben R. Finney
DESCRIPTION: 9-26 pp.; 28 cm.
NOTES: American Anthropologist, Mar., 1985, vol. 87, no. 1, p. 9-26
NOTES: The west to east migration of the Polynesians and their Lapita predecessors was not accomplished by tacking against the prevailing southeast trade winds, but by using periodic westerly wind reversals to sail eastward. Data on equatorial westerlies and associated ocean current effects, including those gathered during recent El Nin?o events, are presented to indicate how these canoe voyagers were able to migrate so far into the Pacific.
