Study of the velocity field of surface currents in the South Atlantic Ocean derived from drifting buoy data

A total of 1442 data series of 996 drifters from public and research databases were analyzed in order to decompose and to estimate the velocity field of surface currents between 30º S and 50º S in the South Atlantic Ocean, with emphasis on the South Atlantic Current (SAC). The SAC is the southernmos...
