By using the data of a standard section made along 24.5°N in the Subtropical Atlantic within the framework of the World-Ocean-Circulation Experiment, we compute the meridional heat transport. In agreement with the major part of published estimates obtained according to the data of direct oceanographic measurements, it is approximately equal to 1.1 PW. The meridional heat transport along 24.5°N is caused mainly by the quasistationary meridional circulation with fairly stable structure. At the same time, we discovered the intense seasonal variability of some components of the meridional heat transport. The contribution of eddy heat flows to the integral transport is insignificant.
