Comments on Southern Ocean Near-Surface Circulation and its Variability

  • Arnold L. Gordon (a1)

Abstract

This literature review discusses the mean and variable surface-layer circulation of the Southern Ocean. The variable components are equal to or even more energetic than the mean circulation. Therefore circulation charts often do not present the significant currents that exist during specific periods.
