ABSTRACT This paper is a review of the large-scale features of distribution of krill (Euphausia superba) and the hydrography of the Southern Ocean, as determined from the major oceanographic research expeditions of the 20th century. It is intended for the biologist interested in the physical oceanographic literature of the Southern Ocean and includes some of the basic krill literature for the oceanographer engaged in multidisciplinary research programs. The broad features of krill distribution from an oceanographer's viewpoint are described, followed by a general account of the hydrographic methods and their possible application to krill research. A sector-by-sector excursion around Antarctic circumpolar waters describes the hydrography of each sector. The literature is primarily from those studies where basic physical oceanography was the major impetus for the study.
