Abstract

A relatively large research effort has historically focused on the northern part of the Kerguelen Plateau, providing an improved view of the ocean circulation at regional (McCartney and Donohue, 2007; Park et al., 2008; Roquet et al., 2009) and more local scales (Park et al., 2009; van Wijk et al., 2010; Vivier et al., 2015). Here we focus on the ocean circulation and frontal structure between the southern section of the Kerguelen Plateau and the Antarctic margin (Heywood et al., 1999; McCartney and Donohue, 2007).
