    The world’s longest ocean current is the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. It runs eastward perpetually rejoining with itself after 13,000 miles. It transfers 130 billion cubic meters of water per second which is more than all of the world’s rivers combined.

    As part of the Southern Ocean, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current is the largest current in the ocean, at approximately 125 Sverdrups (a unit of measurement for volume transport). One unit of Svedrups (Sv) is equivalent to 264 million U.S. gallons per second. The Antarctic Circumpolar Current helps sustain the massive ice sheets of Antarctica by diverting warm water away from it.
