Abstract: Existe limitada e esparsa informação na literatura sobre a Corrente do Brasil, a corrente de contorno que fecha o Giro Subtropical do Atlântico Sul em sua borda oeste. Neste artigo, compilamos as informações atualmente disponíveis na literatura para fornecer uma visão dos aspectos cinemáticos e dinâmicos desta corrente, enquanto flui ao largo do Leste Brasileiro. Discutimos sua composição em termos de massas de água e de sua extensão vertical em diversas latitudes. Também apresentamos levantamento atualizado s… Show more

“…The Cabo Frio upwelling is seasonal (stronger during summer) with predominant North and Northeast winds (Silveira et al, 2000). According to Castro and Miranda (1998), the SACW intrusion is associated with meanders and eddies from the Brazil Current.…”

“…There are two types of upwelling in the southeastern Brazilian Continental Margin (Palma & Matano, 2009): the coastal upwelling near Cabo Frio, which is intensifi ed in the summer due to the action of NE winds, and the shelf break upwelling that operates all the year. In the studied area, the SACW constitutes the main source of nutrients, due to the shoaling of the nutricline induced by the NE winds or by the upwelling in cyclonic eddies formed in the BC at the shelf break (Silveira et al, 2000).…”

“…These properties indicate the influence of SACW identified in the bottom by temperatures below 20 o C and salinities in the range of 34.6 to 36.2. 42 The plot of salinity against temperature for C1 and C2 can be seen in Supplementary Information Figure S1. The current intensity and direction is shown in Figure 3.…”
