What is equatorial low pressure belt?
This belt happens to be the zone of convergence of trade winds from two hemispheres from sub-tropical high pressure belts. This belt is also called the Doldrums, because of the extremely calm air movements. The position of the belt varies with the apparent movement of the Sun.

How are equatorial low pressure belt created?
The sun shines almost vertically on the equator throughout the year. As a result the air gets warm and rises over the equatorial region and produce equatorial low pressure. This belt extends from equator to 10º N and 10 º S latitudes.
