    The Antarctic Circumpolar Current is the largest current in the world.  It measures 125 Sverdrups (0.001 km3/s), and is driven by the strong westerly winds found in the Southern Ocean.

    The Antartctic Circumpolar current is also the strongest current in the world.  It wraps around the entire globe, and reaches down to the ocean floor in places, about 4 kilometers deep.  It also transports about 100 times the water volume of the world’s largest rivers combined.
