Temperature and salinity distributions show important longshore structures that help define the circulation pattern in the widening shelf area south of Cabo Bojador, off Western Sahara. Two mechanisms, one a two-cell cross-shelf circulation and another based on the bending of the flow lines over the bottom contours, interact to fertilize the region. The two-cell circulation acts in the northern sections under the pressure of a frontal zone created by warm surface water that forces sinking of upwelled water. The circulation changes to a one-cell type in the middle sections and is less affected by the front. In the southern sections, the onshore bottom flow practically vanishes, giving rise to a longshore flow pattern that follows the bottom contours at all depths. In the north a tongue of more saline water protrudes from the frontal zone; the tongue is surrounded by less saline deep water that upwells into the coastal zone and offshore at the surface. Both waters are finally mixed in the southern sections.
