The Intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), also known as the Intertropical Front or the Equatorial Convergence Zone, is a belt of low pressure girdling Earth at the equator.

Intertropical Convergence Zone
(abbrev. ITCZ) The boundary zone separating the northeast trade winds of the Northern Hemisphere from the southeast trade winds of the Southern Hemisphere.

Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ): belt of clouds and thunderstorms that runs parallel to the equator and marks where the trade winds of both hemispheres come together.

Intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) - Discontinuous belt of thunderstorms paralleling the equator and marking the convergence of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere surface trade winds.

Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) - The zone of general convergence between the Northern and Southern Hemisphere trade winds.

intertropical convergence zone—The boundary zone between the trade wind system of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres; ...

Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ)- The region where the northeasterly and southeasterly trade winds converge, forming an often continuous band of clouds or thunderstorms near the equator.

An area where the Northern and Southern Hemispheric trade winds converge, usually located between 10 degrees North and South of the equator.

ITCZ: Intertropical Convergence Zone. Trough located next to the equator, delimiting the convergence zone of the air that moves from the subtropical regions of both hemispheres towards the equator.

It is a plume-like object that extends from the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) northward or southward into the higher latitudes. It is usually located over a 850 to 700 mb theta-e ridge axis.

The first is the InterTropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). The ITCZ is a near-solid ring of thunderstorms surrounding the globe found in the tropics.

equatorial convergence zone - Same as intertropical convergence zone.

HORSE LATITUDES Located between 30 North and 30 South in the vicinity of the equator, this area typically has calm or light and variable winds. Related terms: equatorial trough, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), and doldrums ...

The quasi-continuous area of low pressure between the subtropical high pressure areas in both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
