EVIDENCE OF ANTARCTIC BOTTOM WATER IN THE ANGOLA BASIN AT 32-DEGREES-S Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Recent measurements in the South Atlantic provide the first evidence of relatively pure Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW) in the Angola Basin at 32S, 3W, adjacent to the Walvis Ridge. The temperature-salinity-nutrient signature of this water closely resembles that of AABW in the Walvis Kom (a convuluted extension of the Cape Basin), suggesting that leakage of AABW across the Walvis Ridge occurs near 32S in addition to that through the Walvis Passage at 37S. 1991.
