      The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) variability is studied using the Argo-Based Model for Investigation of the Global Ocean (AMIGO) recently developed at the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology. A prominent feature of the method is the application of variational interpolation of irregularly located Argo measurements to a regular grid followed.   The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is the dominant feature of ocean circulation in the Southern Hemisphere at least in part by the vigorous mid-latitude westerly winds, the ACC is.

The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) connects benthic populations by transporting larvae around the continent, but also isolates faunas north and south of the Antarctic Convergence. We test circumpolar panmixia and dispersal across the Antarctic Convergence barrier in the benthic sea star Glabraster antarctica.

      Antarctic Circumpolar Current, also called West Wind Drift, surface oceanic current encircling Antarctica and flowing from west to east. Affected by adjacent landmasses, submarine topography, and prevailing winds, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current is irregular in width and motion is further complicated by continuous exchange with other water masses at all depths.

Introduction [2] In the first part of this two‐part study [Sokolov and Rintoul,hereinafter SR], we demonstrated that the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) consists of multiple jets Structure and variability of the Antarctic circumpolar current book along particular streamlines throughout the circumpolar path of the ACC frontal structure inferred from maps of sea surface height (SSH) was shown to be consistent Cited by: Request PDF | Circumpolar structure and distribution of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current fronts: 2.

Variability and relationship to sea surface height | In Part 1 of this study, we showed that. [1] In Part 1 of this study, we showed that the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) consisted of multiple fronts, each of which was consistently associated with a particular contour of sea surface height (SSH) or approximate streamline.

In Part 2 we have used maps of SSH to examine the variability of the ACC fronts between and The SSH label associated with each frontal branch is.

Circumpolar structure and distribution of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current fronts: 2. Variability and relationship to sea surface height Serguei Sokolov1,2,3,4 and Stephen R. Rintoul1,2,3,4 Received 18 December ; revised 3 August ; accepted 25 August ; published 19 November The spatiotemporal variability of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) structure in the upper – m layer is analyzed at two sections in the Drake Passage.

The existence of the Subantarctic and Polar Current superjets, formed due to the confluence of a few jets together, is confirmed. Peak eddy activity at the periphery of all the ACC jets is revealed, which demonstates intensive. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is strongly wind forced, ACC must negotiate a number of large topographic barriers, and the meridional deflection of the current influences its structure and variability.

Along the ACC pathway, we can define three categories of flow for the SAF and the PF. These are merging, shoaling, and strong. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is the most important current in the Southern Ocean, and the only current that flows completely around the globe.

The ACC, as it encircles the Antarctic continent, flows eastward through the southern portions of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. E.I., Structure and Variability of the. by the presence of a strong eastward, circumpolar cur-rent, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.

The ACC connects the three major ocean basins (Atlantic, Pa-cific, and Indian) and redistributes active and passive oceanic tracers such as heat, salt, and nutrients. structure and transport of the ACC (Section ).

Numerical and analytical models have led to sub-stantial advances with regard to the theory and dynamics of the ACC, and its links to the merid-ional circulation (Section ).

New observations The Antarctic Circumpolar Current System Rintoul,Hughes and Olbers 60 50 40   Connecting the major Southern Hemisphere oceans, the Antarctic circumpolar current (ACC) plays a decisive role in the mid- to high-latitude SH climate and its variability (e.g., Nowlin and Klinck ; Olbers et al.

).The ACC is an eastward geostrophic flow manifesting as a zonal circulation (clockwise when viewed from above Antarctica) typically in the form of series of fronts and. Southern Ocean warming is concentrated in the circumpolar band corresponding to the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC).

In the top m of the ocean, approximately 80% of the net heat content increase in the Southern Hemisphere oceans appears to have occurred south of 30° S, largely within the ACC [ 2 ].

South Georgia, an island in the eastern Scotia Sea [∼54°S, 37°W; Fig. 1(a)], experiences dramatic interannual variability in its variability is connected to fluctuations in the local abundance of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), the main food source of the higher predators that breed on South Georgia Croxall et al.,Croxall et al.,Boyd et al., port through the Drake Passage and the structure of the main Antarctic Circumpolar Current fronts are well reproduced by the model.

Intrinsic variability is found to be particu-larly intense in the Subantarctic Front and in the Argen-tine Basin, on which further analysis is focused.

The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) is an ocean current that flows clockwise from west to east around alternative name for the ACC is the West Wind ACC is the dominant circulation feature of the Southern Ocean and has a mean transport estimated at Sverdrups (Sv, million m³/s), or possibly even higher, making it the largest ocean current.The Southern Ocean surrounds the Antarctic continent and supports one of the most productive marine ecosystems.

Migratory and endemic species of whales, seals and birds benefit from the high.as it transmits climate anomalies around the hemisphere.

Features of interannual variability have been ob-served to propagate eastward around the SO with the circumpolar flow in the form of a system of coupled anomalies, known as the Antarctic circumpolar wave .
