The Angola Basin is an ocean basin located to the west of Africa at about 15o S in the south-central Atlantic Ocean. It is demarcated to the north by the Guinea Ridge, south of which lies the Angola Abyssal Plain which is fed by the Congo Canyon, the largest in the eastern Atlantic. This basin has also been known as the Buchanan Deep.
