Short summary
This study investigates the variability of the Deep Western Boundary Current at 34.5° S. This current carries a large part of the cold deep limb of the Meridional Overturning Circulation, which is a crucial part of the ocean system and has impacts on global weather patterns. Study of this current in the South Atlantic has been limited in the past, and this new study provides insights into the strength and variability of the current as well as the causes for the observed changes.
