How much water does the ACC move?



  1. 0 Votes

    Observations have revealed a mean Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) transport of 100-150 Sverdrups, which can vary by 50Sv within time scales as short as a month or two.

    A Sverdrup is a unit of volume measurement almost exclusively used with oceanography. One Sverdrup is equivalent to 264 million U.S. gallons per second.

    The ACC moves about 33,000,000,000 (33 billion) gallons of water per second, on average.
