The Vema Channel represents a prominent location for the nortward flow of bottom water in the subtropical western South Atlantic. A recent multibeam echo-sounding survey of the Vema Sill on board F.S. Meteor revealed a narrow and shallow portion of the Vema Channel at 31°12′S, 39°24′W, the Vema Sill. The survey also showed the remarkably asymmetric shape of the sill region, suggesting an interaction between the bottom flow and the shape of the channel.
