Abstract

Relying onin situ observations, the paper shows that, in contrast to the suppositions made in some works that during the dry season, the Canary Current penetrates into Guinea's shallow shelf are as far as 5–6°N, the current flows there in the opposite, north-western direction. As regards the long-shore tongue-like distribution of the hydrological characteristics in the south-eastward direction assumed to be the result of the Canary Current's invasion, it may be accounted for by the joint effect of other physical phenomena.
