Fed in part by the South Atlantic Equatorial, it turns north as the Antilles, Caribbean, and Florida currents, which eventually become the Gulf of the Gulf Stream’s waters eventually arc southward as the Azores and Canary currents, which swing west to join.

Along the coast of South America, the most prominent current is the North Brazil Current, which carries very warm water from about 53N across the equator. Some of that water feeds the Equatorial Undercurrent, but much of it .   The stippled area is affected by trade wind currents in both months.
