The main objective of this cruise was to study in detail the area of interaction between the western border current NBC (North Brazil Current) and the zonal current EUC (Equatorial UnderCurrent). Traffic maps acquired from numeric models and dynamic height satellite images helped locate the retroflection of NBC and the origin of the EUC. The region was sampled by the SeaSoar CTD undolutor, CTD + Rosette + LADCP and the microstructure profiler. The dynamic field of the study area was observed through the ADCP, distribution of the currents at 80 meters depth
