The main features of the South Ocean circulation determined on the basis of geostrophic calculations and those based on the diagnostic model, and also characteristics derived from the data of drifting buoys are described. The analysis of spatial structure and changeability of the Antarctic circumpolar current and connected frontal polar zone is given on the basis of the data obtained in different South Ocean regions during conduction of the multiscale scientific experiments according to the programmes "Polar experiment - South" and "International South Ocean Research" in 1975-1982.
