Schematic diagram of the meridional and zonal flow in the Southern Ocean. ) The diagram represents the summer conditions; average positions of the Convergence and Divergence are shown. The Upper Deep Water is best developed in the Atlantic sector. The south-going component in the Lower Deep Water is weak or reversed in the Pacific (from Brodie, 1965, fig. 33, p. 122). George A. Knox 24 this divergence and the occurrence and strength of the divergent motion are both variable being strongly dependent upon the prevailing meterological and ice conditions (Ivanov, 1970).
