Existing inforrnation is synthesized and new data presented to describe the flow of near-bottorn water frorn the Weddell Sea into the Scotia Sea and westward through Drake Passage along the continental slope. The water characteristics and currents along the northern rnargins of the South Sandwich Island Areare exarnined. Long-terrn current rneasurernents in the bottorn waters at locations over the outer shelf and slope and along the continental rise show persistent flow frorn Atlantic to… CONTINUE READING
