Antarctic Convergence, Antarctic Polar Front

Use Antarctic Convergence for the region about a thousand miles off the Antarctic coast where cold waters meet warmer waters from the north.

Some scientists use Antarctic Polar Front as a synonym, but that term is not as familiar and could be confusing since it can also refer to a meteorological event.
