A relatively strong southward current along the Angolan coast.
The current forms the eastern side of a cyclonic gyre centered on 13°S, 4°E and is driven by the extension of the South Equatorial Countercurrent. It reaches to depths of at least 300 m and attains its maximum speed of 0.5 m s-1 just below the surface.
