Agulhas Current transport derived from satellite altimetry observations in Indian Ocean from 1992-10-14 to 2016-12-28 (NCEI Accession 0175783)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The Agulhas Current is the western boundary current closing the upper-limb of the Indian Ocean subtropical gyre, and is largely linked with the transfer of warm water from the Indian Ocean to the South Atlantic subtropical gyre. This interbasin water exchange takes place mostly through mesoscale processes that occur when the Agulhas Current retroflects south of Africa between 15°E and 25°E. Estimates of the Agulhas Current are carried out by NOAA/AOML using satellite altimetry as the main dataset, and hydrographic observations.
