Abstract

The Amazon River outflow during the spring rainy season is detected in the Atlantic Ocean far from its source. Radio message data from ocean stations taken during BOMEX 1969 indicate the vast extent of the water mass. The fresh water on the surface permits a warm stable layer to exist below the surface.
