Data collected in 1988-1989, as part of the South Atlantic Ventilation Experiment, have been combined with the historical database to study the circulation and water mass variability of the abyssal water in the Argentine Basin. A map of potential temperature at 4000 m used as an indication of geostrophic shear defines a south and western intensified crescent-shaped abyssal recirculation. Within this recirculation, and its northward extension to the Brazil Basin, Antarctic Bottom Water (AABW… CONTINUE READING
