The Falkland Current is a cold water current that flows northward along the Atlantic coast of Patagonia as far north as the mouth of the Río de la Plata. This current results from the movement of water from the West Wind Drift as it rounds Cape Horn. It takes its name from the Falkland Islands. This cold current mixes with the tropical Brazil Current in the Argentine Sea, giving it its temperate climate.
