Agulhas Current

Agulhas Current

Meridional Eddy Kinetic Energy

The mean meridional eddy kinetic energy over the Agulhas Current retroflection region between November 1992 and December 2004. The bathymetry contours are superimposed. The time-series of geostrophic transport of the Agulhas Current is estimated across a selected transect (yellow line).

Zonal Eddy Kinetic Energy

The mean zonal eddy kinetic energy over the Agulhas Current retroflection region between November 1992 and December 2004. The bathymetry contours are superimposed. The time-series of geostrophic transport of the Agulhas Current is estimated across a selected transect (yellow line).
